Work Progress in Haukiputaa

Valoo shared its progress on the network development works recently. While earthworks faced some delays and challenges in the summer season of 2022, the commissioning of areas 4 and 5 of Haukiputaa is currently underway and scheduled for the spring season of 2023. However, some individual properties in these areas still need to be installed. The completion schedule for areas 1 and 12 of Haukiputaa is expected to be later this year after the construction of the main network is completed.

Progress of Works in Other Areas

Valoo is also introducing fiber optic connections to other areas, including Kouvola, Lappeenranta, Kiiminki, and Kotka, in the spring and summer of 2023. Electrical installations are currently ongoing in Kouvola, with areas 1-4 expected to be completed from week 17, according to the company's estimates. In Lappeenranta, installations are underway in areas 8 and 13, and fiber optic connections will be activated in the first week of May.
