Six Enercon turbines planned off Finland's coast

Alands Vindenergi Andelslag (AVA) says it will proceed with plans for an offshore wind farm in the Nyhamn archipelago following a decision by the Aland Island's Environment Issues Appeals Committee to allow the project to continue. The company is proposing to install six Enercon 1.8 MW turbines from Germany. The positive decision is based on a review of AVA's project and new submissions by the company to the committee, which attached 12 conditions to AVA's planning application and building licences. These stipulate that the turbines must be of the same model and offer an identical visual appearance and "homogenous impact." Additional conditions include provisions to protect and monitor the long term impact on wildlife and in particular birdlife in the archipelago area around Nyhamn. AVA must pay for this research. Backing the project is a Finnish-Swedish consortium including Alandsbanken, Andelsbanken, Merita Bank and Lappobanken.
