Private energy group takes over 30 MW project

Pohjolan Voima (PVO), a privately owned Finnish energy group, is acquiring a wind farm planned for construction in Kemi in north-west Finland from a consortium that includes turbine manufacturer WinWind and the municipality of Kemi. PVO's interest in taking over the 30 MW development heightened after the Ministry of Trade & Industry agreed to a EUR 9.6 million subsidy for the project. PVO has applied for planning permission for the wind farm, to comprise ten, 3 MW turbines. If given the go ahead, construction work will start in the autumn. When completed, it will be Finland's biggest wind farm. "PVO's interest in the project is very welcome and timely," says WinWind's Veli-Matti Jääskeläinen. "We expect that four turbines will be erected in the first stage of the project and a further six in the second stage."
