Finnish industry leaders Nokia, Kalmar, Valmet, Neste and Pöyry have all had a busy week.

First up is Nokia, which is deploying G.fast technology in Luxembourg together with Post Luxembourg. The technology will boost speeds of available copper infrastructure in buildings and brings fiber-like speeds to residents in the country.

Nokia is also keeping busy in India, where it has partnered with ONE Broadband, part of Hinduja Group, to deploy Nokia’s Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON) technology and other Nokia technology. This seeks to meet growing demand from ONE Broadband’s customers for high-speed broadband services and capacity.

Nokia has also struck up a partnership with Sweden-based Tele2. The deal will bring complete Internet of Things (IoT) services to Tele2’s enterprise customers in fields such as transport, healthcare, smart city and utilities, by utilising Nokia’s worldwide network grid (WING).

Then on to Kalmar, part of Cargotec, which has signed a service agreement with Sweden-based global port operator Yilport. The agreement covers the full maintenance operations at Yilport’s three Swedish terminals.

Next up, Valmet will supply a rebuild with installation for Sappi Gratkorn Mill in Austria, to improve the efficiency, reliability and energy efficiency of the paper machine (PM 9) at the mill.

Neste, meanwhile, has convinced public transportation service WestCAT in California of the benefits of Neste MY Renewable Diesel during a three-month trial period. WestCAT has now switched its entire fleet of 45 heavy duty buses from using petroleum to Neste’s low carbon biofuel.

Finally to Pöyry, which has been awarded by Debed Hydropower with the engineering services and consultancy services assignment for the feasibility study of the Shnogh Hydropower Project in Armenia. The Shnogh Project is located along the Debed river in northern Armenia.
