A ground base station for space probes for the European Space Agency (ESA) is being planned and built in Järvenpää. The prototype of the base station is being made as a multi-professional collaboration at the premises of Vocational Education and Training Center Keuda. Steelhouse has welded the structure of the prototype of the base station.
The main contractor and head designer of the project is engineering company Rejlers Oy, and several different parties are involved in the project as subcontractors. The materials used in the prototype are oxygen-resistant steel. The finished prototype rises to a height of five meters.
