Construction of the power plant was started in 1940, but electricity generation for national grid was not started until 1948. The construction was delayed due to Second World War, although soviet prisoners of war were used as labour during the war. The power station building has been designed by architect Bertel Strömmer and the master plan of the area by architect Alvar Aalto.
