The total installed wind capacity of Finland was nearly doubled to 20 MW last month when an 8 MW wind farm was inaugurated at Pori on the west coast, reports project consultant Esa Holttinen of Ekono Energy Ltd. Consisting of eight Bonus 1 MW turbines, the wind farm is the country's largest to date (Windpower Monthly, January 1999). Some 200 guests attended the event.
