Neste Corporation, Press Release, 14 December 2023 at 9 a.m. (EET)

Neste secures safe and undisrupted operations at its refineries with regularly scheduled maintenance shutdowns, i.e. major turnarounds. The next major turnaround at Neste’s refinery in Porvoo, Finland, is scheduled for April-June in 2024. During the scheduled time, the entire Porvoo refinery will be shut down for regulatory inspections, maintenance works and selected asset improvement initiatives. The estimated duration of the turnaround is approximately nine weeks. 

“The major turnaround is an investment in securing safety, availability and competitiveness of the refinery. In addition, the turnaround will contribute to Neste’s ambition to make the Porvoo refinery the most sustainable refinery in Europe by 2030 and to reach carbon neutral production by 2035. Together with our audited contractors, we are committed to creating a safe working environment at the Porvoo refinery and a successful turnaround,” says Sami Wasström, Head of Turnarounds at Oil Products, Neste. 

All contractors participating in the turnaround are required to commit to Neste Supplier Code of Conduct covering the areas of human and labor rights, occupational health and safety, climate, environment and ethical business conduct. 

Neste harbor and distribution terminal at the refinery in Porvoo will operate normally during the major turnaround, and product deliveries to customers will continue without disruptions.
