Patria’s (excl. Millog) total water consumption (household water and lake water) rose by 166%.
The consumption of lake water increased by 3.5 times what it was in 2017.
This is due to fluctuations in the number and type of engines that are overhauled in different years. At the Linnavuori site, lake water is used to cool engines during test runs and to dry ovens and vacuum furnaces. The used cooling water is fed back into Lake Jokinen. Lake water accounted for 85% of total water consumption. Patria’s total consumption of household water rose by 13% on 2017. Production volumes also affect water consumption.
