Winter Maintenance Management Centre

Unique service in the world for road winter maintenance management

Destia and the Finnish Meteorological Institute combined their know-how in 2002 and The Winter Maintenance Management Centre was established, tasked with serving road maintenance personnel even more efficiently. The Winter Maintenance Management Centre provides the best possible weather forecasts, enabling winter maintenance work to be performed at precisely the right time.

The Winter Maintenance Management Centre has access to the sector's most advanced models and the Finnish Transport Agency's road weather sensors. Solid practical experience of winter weather and winter maintenance of roads enables de-icing to be anticipated efficiently. Working together enables the formation of a good overall view of regional ploughing and de-icing needs over subsequent hours and days.

At the Winter Maintenance Management Centre, experienced meteorologists and experts specialising in winter road maintenance are at road users’ disposal 24 hours a day throughout the winter.

Winter Maintenance Management Centre facilitates winter maintenance of roads and increases safety for road users

Our co-operation highlights the integration of solid weather and meteorological know-how with the most advanced technology in the sector for modelling weather conditions.
