Fortum head officeEdit profile
The Fortum head office is a high-rise office building located in Espoo, just outside Helsinki, the capital of Finland. With a height of 84 metres (274 feet), it is currently the second tallest habitable building in Finland. The building houses the head office of Fortum, an energy company owned primarily by the Finnish state. It was constructed between 1973 and 1978, while Uolevi Raade was the manager of Neste, which merged and later demerged with Imatran Voima, the predecessor of Fortum. This is why the building is sometimes referred to as Raaden hammas ('Raade's tooth'). When Imatran Voima merged with Neste, the merged company Fortum took the building as its HQ. However, in the demerger six years later, the building was not returned to Neste Oil, but was retained by Fortum, the electricity producer. Consequently Neste Oil had to construct a new HQ building nearby.
