With the acquisition of Posion Energia Oy and the construction of the wind power station, E-Group is completing the first phase of entering the Finnish energy market, Anton Bielik said as cited by TASR.

E-Group, which considers the potential of the Finnish market – as well as the competition within it - to be huge, plans to gradually carry out several energy projects in Finland.
