Minimise the risks of constantly changing access requirements

Helen Oy is one of the biggest companies supplying electricity and new energy solutions in Finland. The company secures electricity, district heating and district cooling for more than 500,000 customers all over Finland. Helen’s Helsinki service area has three electric power stations, more than ten district heating facilities, two underground district cooling facilities and around 1,000 employees. All these assets present a big challenge, especially from a key and access management perspective. In addition, subcontractors and their constantly changing access needs create their own challenge. With many people coming and going, key control can’t be based simply on trust.

Security control with just one system

With the aid of the PROTEC2 CLIQ locking and access management solution, employees and contractors can open any door they need to with just one electromechanical key. Access rights for each key are programmed to match employees’ needs, and the key therefore only grants access to those areas that employees need to access. If a key gets lost, it’s easy to remove all its access rights by using ABLOY OS and its map-based user interface.

In future, all Helen’s access systems and processes will be integrated with the ABLOY OS security ecosystem. In addition to including existing locking, key and access management, Helen’s goal is to integrate their safety training requirements with the system. The system can therefore automatically define the security training that needs to be passed before access rights can be granted to employees working on specific projects.

With system integrations, it’s possible to automate and increase the efficiency of daily activities. Automation also ensures that users won’t make any access control mistakes.

“The time for stand-alone programs is over. In future, everything at Helen will work through the ABLOY OS security ecosystem.”

Mats Fagerström, Company Security Manager at Helen
