Peab has been commissioned to build a new production plant for the food company Atria Oyj i Seinäjoki. The contract is worth EUR 24 million.
Atria’s project comprises a new plant for poultry production, which will contribute to increasing the production capacity of chicken products by 40 percent in Finland. The new factory building will be 200 meters long and 130 meters wide making up a total area of 36,000 m2. In addition to the production section Peab will also build a cafeteria, personnel space and offices.
“We are proud to carry out this extensive and important project. Building a production plant for this kind of food requires a special know-how and expertise that we have acquired over time in our previous collaborations with Atria,” says Matti Joensuu, Region Manager Peab.
“This is a unique project for us at Atria and a major investment in Finnish poultry production. It has serious bearing on our long-term competitive capacity. With Peab we get a partner with knowledge of and experience in complex projects,” says Reijo Äijö, Vice President Technology at Atria Suomi and project manager for the new production plant.
Peab’s part of the project begins in September 2021 and is expected to be completed at the end of 2023.
The project will be order registered in the third quarter 2021.
