Project management

Chaos Simplified

Large investment projects are extremely complex and usually very challenging to manage. Fineweld has created its own project management model where large projects are divided in manageable entities. Instead of managing tens of thousands of units on site, the project is divided into a manageable number of entities to help time scheduling, manufacturing control, installation control and cost control.


We think differently


Fineweld has reshaped the traditional plant construction with its semi-modular plant construction concept.

Piping, steel structures, process equipment, instrumentation, and electrification are packed to modular entities that can effectively be manufactured at workshop and installed in a short time frame. This saves both time and money. Where applicable, a more traditional installation concept is applied.


When done properly, site installation works can be performed with up to 50% less workforce.

Experience

Experience is the
secret behind success

The single most important factor in Fineweld´s success is the right mix of people with the right experience. Other cornerstones of Fineweld's success are our own effective project management system, workshop and straightforward manufacturing and installation processes.

At Fineweld, you will always meet people who want to execute their tasks in the best possible way.


Logistics


The Fineweld workshop’s location close to the maritime, road and rail transport connections ensures effective delivery of large contracts.

We make projects effortless for our customers


The common denominator of our customers is that production is their core business. Large investments for new capacity are endeavours that are not undertaken every year.

We only do large-scale investment projects and can help our clients with our experience and tools that we develop further on a daily basis.

Fineweld to deliver pipe bridges to the Kemi bioproduct Mill

The modular pipe bridge concept designed and developed by Fineweld has awaken great interest in particular with major forestry sector companies for their billion-euro level investment projects. Entrepreneur and founder of Fineweld, Matti Laitinen, comments the procurement as follows:

“This is already the third large pipe bridge project in the past five years where we have been selected as supplier. It feels great that after two of Sweden’s largest forestry industry projects, we also won this contract for Metsä Fibre/Group’s Kemi bioproduct mill that is by far the largest and most interesting project in Finland for the moment. This proves that when you have guts to do things in a slightly different way from your competitors and concentrate on demanding project deliveries, Finnish companies will continue to have the opportunity to participate in such mega-level projects”.

The project will start immediately, installations on site will commence at the beginning of next year, and the entire project shall be completed by mid-2023.

Fineweld chosen as a key supplier for Northvolt’s battery factory project

Fineweld’s owner and CEO Matti Laitinen is extremely happy describing the biggest contract in Fineweld’s history.

“This is a unique opportunity for us to be a pioneer in building a completely new industry in European scale. This project is an excellent opportunity for us to show our proven skills in large industry projects and create a concept for building a series of similar process lines for coming investments in Skellefteå and possibly on other European locations. This project alone will take more than two years and it gives us a great possibility to lift our company to a new level.”

Project will be executed in alliance with ABB and Sweco. Sweco will take responsibility for engineering. ABB will deliver plant electrification, instrumentation and automation.
