Regional energy firm joins forces in bid to build island wind plant

A company owned by 21 regional energy firms in Finland, Etelä-Pohjanmaan Voima (EPV), is hoping to buy a site on the west coast of the Finnish island of Vallgrund to build a 80-120 MW wind farm by 2010. It wants to apply for a construction permit in October. "We have already signed preliminary agreements with landowners to erect up to 40 two to three megawatt turbines," says EPV's managing director, Tomi Mäkipelto. EPV also plans to negotiate the purchase of further sites along the west coast at Teuva, Ilmajoki and Koskenkorva, which could see another 40-50, wind turbines installed in the 2-3 MW size range.
