赫尔辛基,9月14日(新华社)——芬兰石油产品巨头Neste周一表示,该公司计划关闭位于芬兰西南部纳安塔利的炼油厂,裁员470人。根据芬兰法律要求,与工作人员的法定合作会谈将于稍后开始。


Neste的总裁兼首席执行官Peter Vanacker在周一的新闻发布会上说,对化石石油产品的需求正在减少,而可再生能源在消费者选择中的份额预计在未来几年将会增加。“能源领域的变化比预期的要快,”Vanacker指出。


Vanacker说,Neste在芬兰南部Porvoo的炼油厂将会发展为处理可再生能源和回收材料。


芬兰政府持有Neste Oyj的多数股权,该公司在15个国家拥有业务,在全球拥有约5,000名员工,其中4,000名在芬兰。它是世界上最大的可再生柴油生产国之一。


今年,新冠肺炎疫情严重影响了Neste。该公司第二季度的营业额从2019年同期的405.7亿欧元下降到25.73亿欧元(305.8亿美元)。其2020年第二季度利润为2.55亿欧元,低于2019年的3.67亿欧元。

 

HELSINKI, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Finnish oil products giant Neste plans to cut 470 jobs by closing its refinery in Naantali, southwestern Finland, the company said on Monday. As required by Finnish law, statutory cooperation talks with the staff will start later.

Peter Vanacker, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Neste, said in a press release on Monday that the demand for fossil oil products is diminishing and the share of renewable energy sources in consumer choices is projected to increase in the years ahead. "The change in the energy sector is taking place faster than expected," noted Vanacker.

Vanacker said Neste's refinery in Porvoo, southern Finland, will be developed towards processing renewables and recycling materials.

The Finnish state holds majority ownership in Neste Oyj, which has operations in 15 countries and employs about 5,000 people worldwide, 4,000 of them in Finland. It is one of the largest producers of renewable diesel in the world.

This year, Neste has suffered from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The company's turnover in the second quarter (Q2) declined to 2,573 million euros (3,058 million U.S. dollars) from 4,057 million euros in the corresponding period of 2019. Its Q2 profit in 2020 was 255 million euros, down from 367 million euros in 2019.
