Biggest turbine so far installed in Pori

A 2 MW wind turbine from Bonus installed last month at Tahkoluoto in Pori is the biggest so far in Finland. The unit, installed by wind power company Suomen Hyotytuuli, has been named Olaus Magnus. The project cost EUR 2.1 million, with EUR 700,000 provided by Finland's trade and industry ministry. The new turbine doubles wind capacity at Tahkoluoto to 4 MW, making it the largest wind station in Finland. Suomen Hyotytuuli, founded in 1999, is owned by nine regional and local energy groups which buy and market wind energy produced by Suomen Hyotytuuli. There are 64 wind power plants in operation in Finland with a total capacity of around 41 MW. Wind power plants are typically rated at 600 kW, giving wind power a 0.1% share of total energy output in Finland.
