Students visit Finland day 1

What happened on Monday?


First we ate breakfast at the school cafeteria at 8 am.

Then at 8.45 we discussed the week’s program and translated the tasks.

At 10.30 we ate lunch and left to Merikoski powerplant at 11.30. We drove there with electric- and hybrid cars and two vans.

At 12.00 we arrived at the Merikoski powerplant and a guy gave us a tour of the plant.

At 13.30 we left to Proventia and arrived there at 14.00.

At Proventia we were given a tour and explained what the company does, which is exhaust gas purification of heavy duty vehicles.

We left at 15.15 and arrived in Vallinranta at 16.00.

At Vallinranta we had many activities, we played AutOlympic games, some people went to the sauna, some even swam at the river. For dinner we ordered pizza and had problems with wrong orders.

We left Vallinranta at 20.00, some of us went home and the germans went on their own trip to see the landscape of Finland.


Studentvisit Finland day 2

In the morning we had breakfast at 8 o’clock and then got our Lunchbags

After that we drove to the racetrack, to do some test driving of some electric Vehicles. And tested which car has the best consumption on the race track. And these are the results : 

  1. Opel Ampera consumption: 21.9 kWh/100km 
  1. Audi A3 consumption: 6,6L/100km    77.4Wh/100km 
  1. BMW i3 consumption: 13,3 kWh/100km


It was interesting to see that the audi used much more energy than the other carsWe think this is because the efficiency of the audi is lower because it drives with the ICE and not like the other cars with the electric engine. 

After the race we went to a river called Koitelinkoski and went to the forest and then we grilled some sausage on a bonfire with a stickThen we enjoyed the beautiful view of the Koitelinkoski river 

In the evening we then went to a car museum in Kaakkuri and then a old guy showed us through the car museum and told us some stories of the cars that were in the Museum 

After that we went to Nallikari and enjoyed the view of the oceanThen we went to Corleone Pizzeria and had some great Burgers 




Student Visit Finland DAY 3.

The morning we started with breakfast with all students.

We gathered in the classroom and discussed the questions and program of the day.

Our destination for the day was Matikaisen Lomaparatiisi at Oulainen. There we got to drive rally with BMW e36 cars. The idea was to get a picture of non economic driving consumption compared to highway consumption and the consumption with electric cars.

We got as a task to measure the highway consumption from Haukipudas to Oulainen and back to Haukipudas. Also we got the following questions that we were to answer during the day. With the help of these questions we got a good picture of energy consumption between race driving, normal petrol cars and electric cars


Millä autolla matkustitte?

What car did travel?

Welches auto wurde gefahren?


  • We travelled to Oulainen with VW Caravelle.
  • Matkustimme Oulaisiin VW Caravellellä.
  • Wir sind mit einem VW Caravelle nach Oulainen gefahren.



Kuinka paljon auto jolla matkustitte kulutti energiaa / polttoainetta matkan aikana?

How much did the car use energy/fuel during the trip?

Wieviel Kraftstoff/Energie wurde auf dem Trip verbraucht?

  • Total  kilometres for the travel 266. Average consumption of the car 6,5 l/100 km. Total fuel consumption 17,29 liters.
  • Matkan kokonaispituus oli 266 kilometriä. Caravellen keskikulutus oli 6,5 l/100 km ja bensan kokonaiskulutus 17,29 litraa.
  • Die gesamt kilometer sind 266 für die gesamtstrecke. Die verbrauch war 6,5 l/100 km und wir haben 17,29 liter gesamt verbraucht.


Kuinka suuri kulutus kilpa-autona toimivan BMW:n ottomoottorissa on kilpa-ajon aikana L/100km?

How big consumption is in the BMW racing car’s petrol engine during the race L/100 km?

Wie hoch war der Verbrauch im BMW Rennauto während des Rennens?

  • Mr. Matikainen said it is about 50 l/100 km consumption with the racing cars.
  • Matikainen sanoi, että kilpa-autot kuluttavat 50 l/100km.
  • Herr Matikainen sagte das die rennautos 50 l/100 km verbrauchen.


Kuinka suuren määrän energiaa 1L bensiiniä sisältää (kWh)?

How much energy includes one liter of petrol (kWh)?

Wieviel energie beinhaltet 1L Petrol?

  • One liter of fuel includes 8,76 kwh of energy.
  • Yhden bensiinilitran energiamäärä on 8,76 kwh.
  • Ein liter sprit beinhaltet 8,76 kwh energie.


Kuinka suuri määrä energiaa kilpa-ajossa kuluu kWh/100km?

How big amount of kWh/100 km energy is consumed in race driving?

Wie Hoch ist der kWh/100km energiverbrauch in einem Rennen?

  • 438 kwh/100 km energy is consumed in race driving.
  • Kilpa-ajossa kuluu 438 kwh/100 km energiaa.
  • 438 kwh/100 km energie wird in einem rennen verbraucht.


Kuinka monta kilometriä energiamäärällä ajaisi sähköautolla?

How many kilometres would you drive by electric car with that same energy amount?

Wie Hoch ist die Reichweite bei einem elektroauto mit der gleichen Energie?

  • 2190 km.


Mikä on BMW:n ottomoottori tuottama CO2 päästö g/km?

What is BMW petrol engines carbon dioxide emissions g/km?

Wieviel NoX ausstoß hat der BMW?

  • 213 g/km.


Vertaa BMW sähköauton ja kilpa-auton kulutusta ja CO2 päästöjä g/km.

Compare BMW electric cars and racing cars consumption and carbon dioxide emissions g/km?

Wie Hoch sind die unterschiede beim g/km und bei CO2 ausstoß zwischen den Autos?

  • Electric car’s consumption 20 kwh/ 100 km compared to racing car’s 438 kwh/100 km. So it is almost 22 times bigger consumption with race cars. The emissions with racing cars is 213 g/km compared to electric cars that leave no carbon dioxide emissions!
  • Kulutusta vertaillessa voidaan todeta, että kilpa-autot kuluttavat 22 kertaa enemmän energiaa. Päästöjä syntyy 213 g/km kilpa-autoista, kuten taas sähköautot ovat hiilidioksidi päästöttömiä!
  • Die rennautos verbrauchen das 22 fache als das electro auto. Das rennauto hat eine emission von 213 g/km und das electro auto keine nox emission!

Student Visit Finland DAY 4


At this morning we had breakfast at 8 AM.

After breakfast we met us in our classroom at 8.30AM.We did some organizational stuff. Then we did our summary of the days Monday to Thursday for the EMOR-block.

We calculated the consumptions of the whole week and here are these:

Economical driving Highway consumption
kWh/100km l/100km     kWh/100km l/100km
BMW i3 16,77 20
VW Caravelle 72,485 7,63 61,75 6,5
Audi A3 62,7 6,6 54,15 5,7
Opel Ampera 21,95 15,1
BMW i3 Rex 6,28
Energy density of gasoline per litre kWh/L 9,5



This is a finish table of origin of the heat and sources of energy.

It is 9.5.2019 and it is Europe Day
