Vision of Water-, Heating- and Gas products

By Noora Liljanto on Apr 14, 2021 8:58:37 AM

I have just completed a long, comprehensive and important project regarding our long-term plan for water-, gas- and district heating NIS-products. As a result of the project, we have clarified the purpose of the products, the vision and the priorities for the coming years. In addition, we have a clear indicative roadmap for the next three years.
