Exactly 40 years ago kemi river, it was decided that enough was enough. The river was harnessed for electricity production, but the clarity in the power plant construction, the disadvantages of replacement of the lappish people still not.

at the high court in then it was already in threshed it whether indemnification Finland's longest river, the first dam to Pohjolan Voima or also Kemijoki Oy, who's compensation is eligible and how much they should pay.
