Group and History

Alexela operates in three areas: energy, the metal industry and property development. Our strategic projects for the coming years are the development of an LNG terminal in Paldiski, increasing the use of liquid gas as vehicle fuel and increasing the volumes of electricity generation and shale oil production.

Alexela is a constantly growing and developing company. Excellent customer service as well as providing quality products and services to our clients is extremely important to us. We work very hard to achieve this. We also give a lot of attention to nature conservation and proceed from the principles of social responsibility.

We wouldn’t have made it to the top without our dedicated staff. The company that manages to hire the most talented and committed people in the area – employees who create important added value for the company and give it a competitive advantage – is the one that survives in tough competitive conditions.
