Don’t count on luck to protect you from flooding

If the hardest rains in 50 years and a fire occurred at the same time, where would the rainwater and fire water end up? These kinds of questions were considered by the planners of the energy company Vantaa Energy and the consulting and engineering company Pöyry, as the drawings for the future waste power plant of Vantaa, one of the largest cities in Finland, were on the table.
