Metallipalvelu Hartikainen Oy delivered, installed and managed the project management of the largest EN1090 EXC-3 steel structure delivery for the ski and baseball stadium of the city of Tampere during last spring and early summer 2022. The site was a candidate for Steel Structure of the Year 2022 and the award was won by Turku Toripaviljongit. The award goes to a construction project that is architecturally of a high standard and uses steel and other metals insightfully in the construction phase.

Our next steel construction site was in Ylöjärvi, where our customer builds equipment protection for his machines. The delivery included erection the structures. The site was challenging due to the height of the structures and the installation site.

Kauppi Stadium in Tampere

Metallipalvelu Hartikainen Oy delivered, installed and handled the project management in its largest EN1090 EXC-3 steel structure delivery – 850 tons of load bearing steel structures in total. The total delivery time was about 4 months.

The city of Tampere made the final decision on the new skiing and baseball stadium last fall 2021. The decision was spurred by the great success of both the women’s and men’s Finnish baseball teams in the 2021 season. The design of the stadium was started after the decision was made and the tenders were sent early the following year. The contract was won by Alasen Rakennus Ltd, which acted as the main contractor, for which Metallipalvelu Hartikainen Oy supplied the steel structures, installation and project management.

The schedule was really tight, as evidenced by the fact that in the spring at the end of April 2022, the project management started their actions at the installation site. Actions were therefore taken actively and 850 tons of steel structure could be delivered for installation from the middle of May. The project management was able to tighten the speed of installation in the last weeks so that the handover was successful in Midsummer’s week in accordance with the dead-line.

Baseball’s Itä-Länsi Event (East-West Games) were played on July 9-10, 2022, and the 100th anniversary event got a stadium it deserved. The best players of the season played in the East-West Event according to the geographical division. At the previous day, a men’s national league game between Manse PP and Sotkamo Jymy was played, which attracted a large crowd.

The first Finnish Championship skiing of 2023 will be contested at the Kauppi Stadium on January 20-21. Finnish Cup points are also awarded in the games. In the Tampere Skiing Championship, Finnish championships are competed for in freestyle skiing pair sprints and 10 km timed starts, as well as classic skiing style sprints.

Farmari 2022

MPH Products participated with its own stand at the Farmari fair in early July. The fine weather attracted a large number of people, almost 60,000 fair visitors. There was a lot of activity in the MPH Products stand and the products interested visitors. We received many interesting contacts and we look forward to customer meetings next autumn.

Another group company of Tampereen Konepajat Oy was present at the MPH Products stand. ProSilva Oyj forest machines were not in the stand, but domestic Sales Manager Jesse Jolkkonen was pleased with the arrangement. He said that ProSilva’s products were of interest and he arranged many customer meetings during the fair.
