Overview

Dovre Group is a global provider of project management services. The Group’s parent Dovre Group Plc is domiciled in Finland and is listed on Nasdaq Helsinki (symbol DOV1V). Dovre Group has three business areas: Project Personnel, Consulting and Renewable Energy.
The three segments' organic development has been strong in recent years, while outlook for the key markets, namely the Norwegian oil and gas industry, the Norwegian public sector and the Finnish wind power construction market, remains favorable in the short and long-term. We believe Dovre is therefore likely to reach a healthy 5% organic CAGR in the coming years, which would also help EBIT margin to improve to around 5%.

Dovre Group Plc                Press release                        June 3, 2024, at 9.30 a.m.

Dovre joins the Pyhäsalmi renewable energy consortium’s 85 MW BESS solution

Dovre Group joins the Callio renewable energy consortium in Pyhäsalmi consisting of three separate projects. Dovre’s first commitment is to participate in developing an 85 MW Battery as an Energy Storage System (BESS) adjacent to the former Pyhäsalmi copper and zinc mine. The next two projects under the development of Callio are photovoltaic solar parks (PV) and an Underground Pumped Hydroelectric Storage (UPHS) facility in the actual mine, both for which Dovre has an option and interest to participate in.

The consortium will consist of Callio development company owned by the municipality of Pyhäsalmi, the Sustainable Energy Solutions Sweden Holding AB (publ) and Dovre Group Plc. The investment of Dovre is sufficient to maintain and further develop the BESS project to a Ready to Build (RTB) phase, as well as the UPHS project until such time that final decision must be made regarding the UPHS construction project later this year. The UPHS provides much higher efficiency rate compared to hydrogen storage systems, and has raised large interest among the investors for the actual construction project.

Ilari Koskelo, Vice Chairman of Dovre, comments:
"For the past few years Dovre’s focus in the Finnish market has been in the renewable energy development and construction business together with group companies Renetec Oy and Suvic Oy. I believe that the concentration of different renewable energy opportunities in the Pyhäsalmi area is innovative and provides energy production efficiency for Dovre and other market participants now and in the future.”

Henrik Boman, CEO of SENS, comments:
"We are excited to have Dovre Group Plc join our consortium as we see the formation of a new energy cluster in Finland. Their participation validates the appeal and effectiveness of SENS's solutions and expertise. With this partnership, we are entering the Finnish market confidently, supported by the trust our partners place in us. We are enthusiastic about our role in delivering sustainable energy storage to the region and contributing to its clean energy future.”

Dovre Group Plc                     Stock exchange release                     April 25, 2024, at 9.15 a.m.

DOVRE GROUP TRADING STATEMENT JANUARY 1 – MARCH 31, 2024

Significant write-down of a single renewable project led to a negative operating profit

Correction: PDF attachments have been added.

Dovre Group Plc issues today a trading statement for the three months ended on March 31, 2024. The figures presented in this trading statement are not audited. Last year’s corresponding period in parentheses.

January – March 2024

  • Net sales EUR 42.3 (45.8) million – decrease 7.6%
    • Project Personnel: net sales EUR 25.2 (24.8) million – increase 1.7%
    • Consulting: net sales EUR 3.6 (5.1) million – decrease 29.6%
    • Renewable Energy: net sales EUR 13.5 (15.9) million - decrease 15.1%
  • EBITDA EUR -4.6 (1.9) million
  • Operating result EUR -4.9 (1.7) million
  • Result before tax EUR -5.1 (1.5) million
  • Result for the shareholders of the parent company EUR -2.4 (1.0) million
  • Earnings per share EUR -0.023 (0.010)
  • Net cash flow from operating activities EUR -1.9 (4.3) million

Dovre Group’s profitability for the period was clearly negative due to a significant write-down (5.8 million euros) of a single renewable energy project. The project was technically successful but exceeded the cost budget considerably. Corrective actions have been taken and Suvic expects the remainder of the 2024 to clearly exceed the comparison period of 2023 in both revenue and EBIT.

Outlook for 2024

Dovre Group’s net sales are expected to be in the range of 185 - 210 MEUR and the Operating Profit (EBIT) is expected to be in the range of 2 - 4 MEUR.

The lower than 2023 EBIT is due to the above mentioned significant one-time write-down of a single renewable project in Q1.

Dovre`s Project personnel and Consulting business areas are expected to decline in both revenue and EBIT compared to 2023 due to the completion of a major project in Canada and somewhat slower activity in the Norwegian public sector.

ARVE JENSEN, CEO:  
  
In Q1 2024, Dovre Group posted total net sales of EUR 42.3 million, reflecting a 7.6% decrease compared to the same period in 2023. Our Project Personnel segment continued to perform well, reporting sales of 1.7% higher than the previous year. By contrast, the Consulting segment reported a 29.6% decrease, while Renewable Energy experienced a 15.9% decrease in net sales during Q1 2024.

Our Project Personnel business area remained highly active. We also successfully implemented restructuring the EMEA unit in Finland, consolidating the essential parts of project personnel to Norway. The objective was to improve the profitability and quality of service by centralizing operations in Norway and streamlining the remaining operations in Finland.

The Consulting business area has been negatively impacted by a slower market in the public sector in Norway and Norwegian legislation on hiring practices. Meanwhile, the Finnish market remains stable and profitable following the restructuring.

In the Renewable Energy business area, our subsidiary Suvic has had a very busy start of the year due to the commencement of the next phases of the two Swedish windfarm projects (Vitberget and Storhöjden) alongside the existing projects in Finland.

As informed in the recent stock release, Outlook for 2024, Suvic has decided to write down a significant loss of 5.8 MEUR for one project. Although the project was technically successful, it exceeded the cost budget considerably. Corrective actions have therefore been taken and Suvic expects the remainder of the year to clearly exceed the comparison period for 2023.

NET SALES

In Q1, Dovre Group’s net sales decreased by 7.6% to EUR 42.3 (45.8). Project Personnel accounted for 60% (54), Consulting for 8% (11) and Renewable Energy for 32% (35) of the Group’s net sales.

Project Personnel’s net sales increased by 1.7% to EUR 25.2 (24.8) million. Net sales for Consulting decreased by 29.6% to EUR 3.6 (5.1) million. Net sales for Renewable decreased by 15.1% to EUR 13.5 (15.9) million.

Renewable Energy 13,5 15,9 -15,1 71,4
Group total 42,3 45,8 -7,6 196,7

 

PROFITABILITY

Dovre Group’s profitability for the period was clearly negative due to the above-mentioned significant write-down (5.8 million euros) of a single renewable energy project.

The Group’s EBITDA was 4.6 EUR million negative (1.9 MEUR positive)
The Group’s operating profit was 4.9 EUR million negative (1.7 MEUR positive)

Project Personnel’s operating profit was EUR 0.7 (1.2) million, Consulting’s operating profit was EUR 0.3 (0.6) million and Renewable Energy’s operating loss was 5.7 (0.2 MEUR positive) million.

The operating loss of the Group’s Other functions was EUR 0.2 (0.2) million.

CASH POSITION

On March 31, 2024, the Group’s net debt was EUR 3.8 (-6.7) million. The Group’s cash and cash equivalents totaled EUR 11.3 (13.5) million. The Group’s interest-bearing liabilities were EUR 15.1 (6.9) million, a total of EUR 8.1 (5.8) million of which were current and EUR 7.0 (1.0) million non-current.

In Q1, net cash flow from operating activities was EUR -1,9 (4.3) million, which includes EUR 2.9 (3.5) million decrease in working capital. The decrease in working capital is primarily due to Renewable Energy business.

 

OTHER EVENTS DURING THE REVIEW PERIOD

Suvic AB, a subsidiary of Suvic Oy, has received a Notice to Proceed for the Storhöjden wind farm

Suvic has received a Notice to Proceed from the customer for the Storhöjden wind farm and will start the actual construction work in Sweden. The work will be carried out by Suvic AB, a wholly owned Swedish subsidiary of Suvic Oy.

With this notification, the conditional contract for Storhöjden announced on 20.12.2023 thus becomes a BoP contract.

Suvic has already completed some design, field surveys and preliminary road alignments in Storhöjden as part of the early works agreement. "The actual work will start with topsoil removal, site mobilisation and quarrying, after which we will build the lifting fields and roadways. The foundations and cabling for the wind turbines are planned to be completed by December 2024," says Olli Niemelä, COO of Suvic's Swedish site operations, explaining the construction schedule for the park.

The park of 22 wind turbines in Kramfors municipality is part of the High Coast project. The BoP is being made with Adalen and HC Wind – SPVs launched by Renewable Power Capital Ltd. (RPC). Headquartered in London, RPC is backed by CPP Investment Board and was founded in 2020 to develop, construct, own and operate renewable energy and industrial scale storage projects across Europe. 

Tricon and Suvic to build a heat pump plant for Fortum in Espoo's Hepokorpi data centre area.

A Working Association of Tricon and Suvic is building a heat pump plant recovering waste heat for Fortum's district heating network in the future data centre area of Espoo. Together with the previously announced heat pump plant in the Kolabacken data centre area of Kirkkonummi, the project will create an unprecedented scale of waste heat utilization.

The heat pump facility at the Hepokorpi data center utilizes waste heat and ambient air. It includes a recovery building housing heat pumps for heat recovery from the data center, air-to-water heat pumps, and electric boiler. The client for the project is Fortum Power and Heat Ltd.

"The Hepokorvi data centre is optimally located close to the district heating network. It is fantastic that we get to build both Fortum's Kirkkonummi and Espoo heat pump plants. The utilisation of waste heat complements our service portfolio for the construction of carbon dioxide-free energy production, which also includes wind power and solar power plants," says Ville Vesanen, CEO of Suvic, about the project.

The waste heat from data centres can replace a significant share of the fossil fuel based heat production in Espoo's district heating network area. In practice, the heat from the data centre's indoor air is transferred through a heat exchanger to water, which flows in a closed loop to the heat pump plant. Heat is transferred from the plant as required to the district heating system and to thousands of homes and other users. The aim is to produce heat from the 2025–2026 heating season onwards.

"The projects in Espoo and Kirkkonummi promote decarbonization, and at the same time, households, services, and businesses receive competitive, clean, and reliable electric-based district heating. Fortum's district heating in Finland will be carbon-free by 2024 and carbon-neutral before 2030," summarizes the benefits of the project Teemu Nieminen, Project Director from Fortum's Heating and Cooling Business.

"The site will be ready for installation in spring 2025. The construction of the Hepokorvi heat pump plant will be somewhat more demanding than the construction of the similar plant in Kolabacken, Kirkkonummi. This is due to the soil, the size of the Hepokorvi site and its location between the power lines and Ring III," says Jukka Kallio of Suvic, project manager for both projects.

With this notification, the conditional contract for Storhöjden announced on 20.12.2023 thus becomes a BoP contract.

Suvic has already completed some design, field surveys and preliminary road alignments in Storhöjden as part of the early works agreement. "The actual work will start with topsoil removal, site mobilisation and quarrying, after which we will build the lifting fields and roadways. The foundations and cabling for the wind turbines are planned to be completed by December 2024," says Olli Niemelä, COO of Suvic's Swedish site operations, explaining the construction schedule for the park.

The park of 22 wind turbines in Kramfors municipality is part of the High Coast project. The BoP is being made with Adalen and HC Wind – SPVs launched by Renewable Power Capital Ltd. (RPC). Headquartered in London, RPC is backed by CPP Investment Board and was founded in 2020 to develop, construct, own and operate renewable energy and industrial scale storage projects across Europe. 

Tricon and Suvic to build a heat pump plant for Fortum in Espoo's Hepokorpi data centre area.

A Working Association of Tricon and Suvic is building a heat pump plant recovering waste heat for Fortum's district heating network in the future data centre area of Espoo. Together with the previously announced heat pump plant in the Kolabacken data centre area of Kirkkonummi, the project will create an unprecedented scale of waste heat utilization.

The heat pump facility at the Hepokorpi data center utilizes waste heat and ambient air. It includes a recovery building housing heat pumps for heat recovery from the data center, air-to-water heat pumps, and electric boiler. The client for the project is Fortum Power and Heat Ltd.

"The Hepokorvi data centre is optimally located close to the district heating network. It is fantastic that we get to build both Fortum's Kirkkonummi and Espoo heat pump plants. The utilisation of waste heat complements our service portfolio for the construction of carbon dioxide-free energy production, which also includes wind power and solar power plants," says Ville Vesanen, CEO of Suvic, about the project.

The waste heat from data centres can replace a significant share of the fossil fuel based heat production in Espoo's district heating network area. In practice, the heat from the data centre's indoor air is transferred through a heat exchanger to water, which flows in a closed loop to the heat pump plant. Heat is transferred from the plant as required to the district heating system and to thousands of homes and other users. The aim is to produce heat from the 2025–2026 heating season onwards.

"The projects in Espoo and Kirkkonummi promote decarbonization, and at the same time, households, services, and businesses receive competitive, clean, and reliable electric-based district heating. Fortum's district heating in Finland will be carbon-free by 2024 and carbon-neutral before 2030," summarizes the benefits of the project Teemu Nieminen, Project Director from Fortum's Heating and Cooling Business.

"The site will be ready for installation in spring 2025. The construction of the Hepokorvi heat pump plant will be somewhat more demanding than the construction of the similar plant in Kolabacken, Kirkkonummi. This is due to the soil, the size of the Hepokorvi site and its location between the power lines and Ring III," says Jukka Kallio of Suvic, project manager for both projects.

Dovre Group Plc                       Stock Exchange Release                    April 18, 2024, at 5.00 pm

DOVRE GROUP PLC OUTLOOK FOR YEAR 2024

In 2024 our revenue is expected to be in the range of 185 - 210 MEUR and the Operating Profit (EBIT) is expected to be in the range of 2 - 4 MEUR.

The lower than 2023 EBIT is due to a significant one-time write-down (approx. 6 million euros) of a single renewable project in Q1. The project was technically successful but exceeded the cost budget considerably. Corrective actions have been taken and Suvic expects the remainder of the 2024 to clearly exceed the comparison period of 2023 in both revenue and EBIT.

Dovre`s Project personnel and Consulting business areas are expected to decline in both revenue and EBIT compared to 2023 due to the completion of a major project in Canada and somewhat slower activity in the Norwegian public sector.

Last year’s corresponding period is shown in parentheses. 

OUTLOOK FOR 2024

Dovre Group will release its outlook at the latest along with the trading statement for Q1 on April 25th, 2024. This is due to Suvic’s sales cycle, which is not complete for 2024 as of today. The Project Personnel segment anticipates a potential decrease in demand following a record year in 2023.

POLICY CHANGE OUTLOOK
Publishing the outlook latest in April will be a permanent policy change for Dovre Group.

CEO ARVE JENSEN:

The year 2023 was marked by both challenges and achievements for Dovre Group. Our net sales for the year fell slightly by 3.1% to EUR 196.7 million. Adjusted for currency fluctuations, sales would have increased by 5.6%, with the notable impact stemming from changes in the valuation of the Norwegian currency. This result, while reflecting broader economic uncertainties, also highlights the strong success of our Project Personnel segment, which saw a remarkable 20.0% growth in net sales. Such growth, particularly notable in the final quarter, demonstrates our team's agility and the strong demand for our expertise. Additionally, our active involvement in Canada, where we successfully concluded a substantial renewable project, further contributes to this positive performance.

However, the year was not without trials. The Renewable Energy segment faced downward pressures, with net sales decreasing by 24.2% that were caused by a reduction in the number and size of new projects in the Finnish Renewable Market sector. Meanwhile, Consulting experienced a 9.1% decline in sales, influenced by a slower market owing to new legislation for hire in Norway and a record high comparison period.

Our operating profit experienced a 12.3% decline, primarily stemming from reduced sales. This decrease can also be ascribed to our ongoing investment in future growth areas and our commitment to maintaining a high level of service quality. Moreover, this should be viewed in the context of the broader industry trend, where many players have faced similar obstacles. However, our strategic initiatives – along with a renewed focus on sustainability – have positioned us well to rebound as market conditions improve.

The year 2023 was also one of strategic recalibration. In response to the shifting market conditions, we intensified our focus on sectors showing strong growth potential, particularly in Project Personnel. Our ability to secure new frame agreements and extend existing ones has been central to this segment's success, demonstrating the enduring strength of our relationships and the value of our service offering.
In Q4 we initiated and completed restructuring of our Project Personnel unit in Finland by transferring the main work into the existing Norwegian unit in order to streamline the operations. The changes resulted in a reduction of four staff and the costs involved were booked in 2023.

In Consulting and Renewable Energy, the challenges have prompted a thorough review of our strategies. Our focus has shifted towards refining our approach to these markets, identifying new avenues for innovation, and leveraging our strengths to navigate in the market that lies ahead.

Our commitment to sustainable development was evident in several landmark projects. Suvic Oy, our subsidiary, secured contracts for the construction of one of Finland's largest solar farms in Lapua. Through Suvic Oy’s operations, we are also expanding our reach into Sweden with two major wind farm projects at Storhöjden and Vitberget. We achieved another key milestone with the co-founding of Renetec Oy, a company with a sharp focus on solar power development. This step aligns with our strategic vision of leadership in the renewable energy sector. Financial figures for Renetec are included in the Renewable Energy segment. Additionally, our collaboration with the Norwegian Ministry of Finance for quality assurance in public projects in Norway reflects our versatile expertise and commitment to project management excellence.

Market cyclicality has posed some hurdles but also opportunities for growth and innovation. Our presence in several geographical regions exposes us to varying economic and political climates. Additionally, the ongoing global shift towards renewable energy presents opportunities in balancing our project portfolio. Addressing these risks is central to our strategy. As a result, we are enhancing our risk management frameworks, diversifying our service offerings, and continuously adapting to market demands.

Looking ahead, we approach the future with cautious optimism, recognizing the growing demand for energy solutions and the opportunities it presents, particularly in renewable sources. This demand drives our focus on delivering sustainable solutions and professional services to our clients and stakeholders.

Dovre Group Plc                 Press Release           January 31, 2024, at 2 pm

Suvic AB, a subsidiary of Suvic Oy, has received a Notice to Proceed for the Storhöjden wind farm

Suvic has received a Notice to Proceed from the customer for the Storhöjden wind farm and will start the actual construction work in Sweden. The work will be carried out by Suvic AB, a wholly owned Swedish subsidiary of Suvic Oy.

With this notification, the conditional contract for Storhöjden announced on 20.12.2023 thus becomes a BoP contract.

Suvic has already completed some design, field surveys and preliminary road alignments in Storhöjden as part of the early works agreement. "The actual work will start with topsoil removal, site mobilisation and quarrying, after which we will build the lifting fields and roadways. The foundations and cabling for the wind turbines are planned to be completed by December 2024," says Olli Niemelä, COO of Suvic's Swedish site operations, explaining the construction schedule for the park.

The park of 22 wind turbines in Kramfors municipality is part of the High Coast project. The BoP is being made with Adalen and HC Wind – SPVs launched by Renewable Power Capital Ltd. (RPC). Headquartered in London, RPC is backed by CPP Investment Board and was founded in 2020 to develop, construct, own and operate renewable energy and industrial scale storage projects across Europe.

Dovre Group Plc                 Inside information          December 22, 2023, at 1.30 p.m.

Suvic Oy has signed a contract to build a 102,2 MWp solar farm in Lapua

Suvic has signed a contract covering the construction of one of the largest solar farms in Finland. The total value of the contract is approximately EUR 38 million.

The 102.2 MWp solar farm will be built on a former peat production area of Heinineva in Lapua and will cover a total area of 140 hectares. The contract includes supplying and installation of panels, panel supports, converter stations and inverters. The scope of the contract can be illustrated by the fact that more than 140 000 solar panels will be installed in the park. Approximately 33 MWp or 12 million euros of the total contract scope is still subject to a separate decision by the client.

The subscriber is EPV Aurinkovoima Oy, a wholly owned subsidiary of EPV Energia.

“EPV owns a lot of land that is especially suitable for this type of solar power generation, and we plan to use it for increasing the solar power with as little environmental impact as possible. EPV’s starting point is to select land in such a way that there is no need to prepare it or cut down trees to make way for the new solar farm,” says Ari Soininen, Managing Director of EPV Solar Power.

Ville Vesanen, CEO of Suvic, says that the demand for solar power construction has made up for the somewhat sluggish wind power market in Finland: “The Lapua project continues Suvic's series of industrial-scale solar power plant constructions in Finland. In this project we will also benefit from our expertise and experience in the implementation of large-scale solar power projects.”

Suvic's Business Director responsible for solar power, Jari Koppelo, commented that the recently acquired project is the result of determined work: “We have systematically developed our expertise in solar power and the Suvic Solar+ concept because we aim to be a significant player in Finland's solar power construction market in the future.”

Suvic will start construction work of the park in May 2024 and the estimated completion date is the end of 2025, with the park aiming to go into production in early 2026.

The project has no impact on Dovre’s guidance for 2023.

Suvic Oy’s subsidiary Suvic AB has signed a BoP contract to build two wind farms in Sweden

Suvic has signed a Balance of Plant contract to build Storhöjden and Vitberget wind farms (the “BoP”). The BoP is valued at about approximately SEK 560 million, and it is the first major project in Sweden for Suvic. The work will be carried out by Suvic AB, a wholly owned Swedish subsidiary of Suvic Oy.

With this contract the pre-works agreement, that was announced September 7, 2023, materialized to a full BoP contract consisting of both wind farms. The now-signed contract is conditional to the contractual partner's separate Notice to Proceed.

Storhöjden and Vitberget wind farms are located in the municipality of Kramfors and are a part of the High Coast project. The plan is to build 46 wind turbines, with 22 located in Storhöjden and 24 in Vitberget. The aim is to try to maximize the number of bedrock anchor foundations by optimizing the location of lifting platforms together with road alignments as a part of the infrastructure design. The wind farms are expected to be completed and ready to use by the end of 2025.

The BoP includes design work, building of roads, lifting platforms, foundations, internal grid groundworks and a communications network. Suvic has already completed some design, field surveys and preliminary road alignments in Storhöjden as part of the early works agreement.

The BoP is being made with Adalen and HC Wind – SPVs launched by Renewable Power Capital Ltd. (RPC). Headquartered in London, RPC is backed by CPP Investment Board and was founded in 2020 to develop, construct, own and operate renewable energy and industrial scale storage projects across Europe. 

“We were convinced by Suvic’s references in the field of wind farm construction in Finland and therefore chose them as our partner in the High Coast project”, states Andrés Iturriaga, the construction project manager for RPC.

The CEO of Suvic Oy, Mr. Ville Vesanen, tells that expansion to the Swedish market has been one of the key targets for the company since its incorporation. “We are very pleased about the trust the RPC has shown us in this significant project. It represents to us an important step towards strong presence in the Swedish market.”

The project has no impact on Dovre’s guidance for 2023.
