Terrafame and Caverion expand their cooperation from industrial maintenance to facilities
Terrafame and Caverion expand their cooperation at the Terrafame industrial site in Sotkamo, Finland. The cooperation includes technical maintenance of the facilities and industrial maintenance and the delivery of certain equipment and solutions. The framework agreement is aimed to develop and diversify cooperation and free Terrafame’s own resources to its core activities.

The importance of partner companies in Terrafame's operating model is great. We value high-quality partners who are able to offer competitive services on a wide scale,” says Matti Rautiainen, Terrafame's Chief Maintenance Officer.
In addition to the framework agreement, Terrafame and Caverion have signed a service agreement on property maintenance and technical maintenance of the building solutions, including automation and cooling solutions. The agreement includes also remote management and stand-by service.
