About Callio Lab

Callio Lab is a new environment for underground research and other activities. The laboratory is located in the Pyhäsalmi Mine which is a copper and zinc mine. It is the oldest operating mine in Finland and the deepest active hard rock mine in Europe with the depth of 1444 metres.

Callio Lab is a part of the Callio Pyhäjärvi concept, which is a globally unique multidisciplinary operating environment. It offers a diverse range of opportunities for success for new and innovative projects and established operators seeking new horizons alike, as well as for training and R&D.

The infrastructure of the mine is excellent for various physics experiments due to the large rock overburden, but it can also serve other fields of sciences, offering unique facilities and a wealth of opportunities for a variety of scientific and commercial purposes.

 

Haapaveden biojalostamo ja Pyhäjärven kaivoksen pumppuvoimala suurimmat energiatuen hakijat. Energiatukea on haettu 140 miljoonan euron edestä ja sitä myönnetään 40 miljoonaa. #CallioPyhajarvi #PPHES #EnergyStorage #InvestFinland #PyhasalmiMine maaseuduntulevaisuus.fi/talous/artikke…

Pyhäsalmen tyhjentyvässä kaivoksessa testataan tulevaisuuden ruokatuotantoa, joka voisi toimia myös Marsin laavatunneleissa suljetun ruoantuotannon steriilinä kasvatusympäristönä. #CallioPyhajarvi #PyhasalmiMine #EdibleInsectsFromMine #kiertotalous bit.ly/2xzM4Uy

Worth of reading. The highest IRR of #PPHES @CallioPyhajarvi can be achieved with a combination of a 50 MW turbine, 62.5 MW pump and 500 MWh reservoir. The IRR of the optimal investment varies between 10.46 and 10.65%. #PyhasalmiMine #InvestEU #InvestFinland #EnergyStorage twitter.com/HuukiHannu/sta…

Pyhäsalmen kaivoksen ainutlaatuista infraa hyödyntävä palo-, pelastus- ja suojelualan koulutuskeskus on toteutumassa. Underground Rescue hanke on saanut tänään positiivisen rahoituspäätöksen. #CallioPyhajarvi #UndergroundRescue #PyhasalmiMine #ppliitto callio.info/2017/wp-conten… pic.twitter.com/rovuNywK7R

What do you expect to see at the depth of 1.5 km? Physicists filling the #underground Lab 2 of @CallioPyhajarvi with their instruments. The research is done as a part of @BalticRegBSUIN project. #BSUIN @UniOulu @uniofjyvaskyla @baltic_sea_prog @Moedas #interreg #BSR #BSI pic.twitter.com/HIaGPiZ6OV Retweeted by Callio Lab
