The hub employs 11,000 people, and many of its more than 140 companies are international market leaders in their sectors. The combined turnover of the companies is over 4.4 billion euros, and export accounts for more than 80% of that figure. This is equivalent to nearly one-third of Finland’s total energy technology exports.
