Due to be the largest shopping centre in Finland, Mall of Tripla chose FSP to perform surface treatment work on the shopping centre’s large steel frame structures during the autumn. The key factor in this project was the ability to give the customer a quick, flexible and secure response, because the order was made with a short response time – which FSP’s Porvoo surface treatment plant was able to meet according to the customer’s wishes.

The project encompassed a large entity constructed of modules, and there were thousands of square metres to be coated. The circular columns were also given a new surface coating. In addition to pre-treatment, the surface treatment project included priming the surfaces for a fireproof coating. The treated steel structures are for a building that will be located in the shopping centre’s service yard.

Mall of Tripla will be built in Central Pasila, Helsinki, and it is going to be a massive entity of three blocks, including a shopping centre, a parking facility, a public transport station, apartments, a hotel, and office spaces. In total, Tripla will have a floor area of 183,000 square metres. Tripla will be completed in stages during the years 2019–2020.

During the autumn, FSP also completed another particularly large surface treatment project at the Porvoo treatment plant. The project comprised approximately seven kilometres of pipelines running inside the power plant under construction in Kilpilahti. According to estimates, the power plant will be operational in 2018.
