Aiming at sustainable development
DB Schenker built a logistics centre in the Ilvesvuori district of Nurmijärvi, near the Tampere freeway. The centre’s surface area measures 23,000 square meters, of which outdoor storage units occupy 6,000 square metres.

The centre meets the requirements for the TAPA A certification, and the equipment and devices used in the facility meet the ATEX directive requirements, meaning that they are approved for the handling of flammable and explosive substances.

Ruukki delivered energy-efficient and airtight energy panels for the facades of the building.

”Our primary goal was to reduce energy consumption. Ruukki® energy panel system enables us to save 20 percent on heating energy consumption. Thanks to the improved air-tightness of the facade structures, we were able to reduce the insulation layer of the ceiling. This has led to significant cost savings and a building with improved energy efficiency.” - Real Estate Director Marco Furu, DB Schenker, Finland
