The project was awarded under a framework agreement signed with Finnish wealth management company Taaleritehdas in June 2012 for a total of 111 turbines.

The eight 2.4MW N117 turbines will be mounted on 120-metre towers situated close to the Gulf of Bothnia, which is characterised by mean wind speeds higher than seven metres per second.

This summer, nine turbines went online at the Honkajoki wind farm in southwest Finland – representing the first project carried out under the framework agreement.

"We are very happy to continue our co-operation with Nordex with a new wind farm installation since Nordex was able to create confidence and good basis for its operations in Finland by outperforming in our first wind farm in Honkajoki", commented Taamir Fareed, director of wind energy business at Taaleritehdas.

Nordex will also open its second service point in Finland to provide local service for the turbines in the north of the country including those at Nybi-Ii and the turbines set to be installed at the port of Raahe.

Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of Nordex's management board, commented: "We are pleased about the sale of yet another N117 project in Scandinavia and to be able to service our customers in Finland even better with the additional service point".
