Ilmatar plans 200MW wind farm in Finland

Ilmatar Energy is planning to develop a 200MW wind farm in the Vermassalo area of Pirkanmaa, southern Finland. 

The planning and permitting process for the 20-25 turbine development will commence towards the end of 2022, with construction planned for 2025-2026. 

It is hoped to begin generation in 2027 or 2028.

Ilmatar is also developing what it claims will be Finland’s largest renewable energy hybrid park.

The developer has received a €19.5 million government grant towards building a 150MW solar park and 50MWh battery storage facility near its under-construction 216MW Möksy and Louhukangas wind farm in Alajärvi, central Finland. The solar and battery storage components will cost €97.8 million, while the subsidy-free wind farm will cost €217 million.
