The agreement was signed with the developer Metsahallitus, a Finnish state-owned company.
The wind farm can exist of a maximum of 19 wind turbines, and is expected to represent a total investment of €90 million. Commissioning is expected in the first quarter of 2013.
“The project will have a positive impact on the employment and entrepreneurial activity of the area. The wind turbines for the park will be manufactured in our factory in Hamina, Finland, and the delivery, construction works and servicing will be taken care of by WinWinD’s personnel in Northern Finland together with local entrepreneurs. This way we can maximize local benefits”, says Aarne Luukko, Vice President, Business Development (Finland) of WinWinD.
