The construction of the main rescue station of the region was successfully completed in Q1 2024 and handed over to Nordisk Renting as the landlord to the Wellbeing Services County of North Savo. The new Neulamäki Rescue station is the second of its kind owned by Nordisk Renting in Kuopio and, together with the Petonen rescue station, forms part of the Nordisk Renting’s growing public sector portfolio.

The main rescue station is strategically located next to highway 5 and in the vicinity of both Savilahti campus area and the University hospital of Kuopio. The rescue station will house operations related to the prevention of accidents, rescue and first-aid services operating 24/7 as well as the Fire Museum. The Wellbeing Services County of North Savo is the client operating in the asset and will move all operations from their old premises to the new modern premises at the Neulamäki rescue station.

The project was successfully completed according to plan
