Fingrid, Finland's grid company responsible for power transmission in the main grid, has selected the Builder of the Year from among its suppliers. In the ceremony that took place on 20 April 2014, the Builder of the Year 2013 title was awarded to site manager Tomi Salonen from Empower's
Power Network Division, Substations Business Unit.
Tomi Salonen has managed important site tasks in several of Fingrid's substation projects. Fingrid's justifications for selecting Tomi as the Builder of the Year were as follows:
Tomi Salonen's work is characterised by a flexible, upstanding and responsible attitude towards managing the jointly operated site. He is highly competent in organising things and offers an encouraging example for both the company's own technicians and business partners. Through careful preparations, Tomi's team implemented a particularly critical circuit-breaker replacement in
Loviisa, reaching quality and schedule targets in an excellent manner.
“It always feels nice to receive appreciation from the customer. However, it should not be forgotten
that this is teamwork, backed by top workers of the site and the support of project managers. Even though this title was awarded to me, I consider it a token of appreciation for the entire team”, Tomi Salonen says.
The award is a great recognition both for Tomi Salonen personally for a job well done and for Empower for the long-term work the company has done to strategically support our customer's business through offering efficient construction and maintenance services.
