The plant would employ eight wind turbines of rated capacity between 2 and 3 MW. The environmental impact assessment process is scheduled to begin this autumn. The partners target operation around 2013, according to Fortum. The Kittila and Sodankyla districts have been designated prime locations for wind power in the Lapland draft regional land usage plan, which was presented to the government in June. Production from the proposed turbines would be equivalent to about 40% of total electricity consumption in the two districts.
