Kilpilahti, Porvoo, has the largest cluster of oil refining and petrochemistry in the Nordic countries. The area has approximately 3,500 jobs. The companies operating there provide a continuous production chain from crude oil to plastic products. Neste also manufactures renewable fuels.
Together with local companies, the City of Porvoo and the development company Posintra are building a new future for Kilpilahti. Development efforts are partly based on the companies’ local operations, while seeking innovative ideas. Kilpilahti has excellent opportunities to develop into an important bio- and circular economy cluster.
Together, the operators involved have defined a common development vision for the area, entitled ”Kilpilahti, world-class industrial circular economy cluster – sustainable, intelligent renewal”. The City of Porvoo is currently zoning more business land for the area.
