The wind power agreement was signed with the wind farm developer Metsahallitus, a Finnish state-owned company. The new wind farm will be significant on a Finnish scale. The full-scale production capacity of the Myllykangas Wind Farm is 50 megawatts, with a maximum of 19 wind turbines located in the area. The total investment in the wind farm is approximately 90 million Euros.
Given that the wind energy project is shown green light, WinWinD will design and build the Myllykangas wind farm. WinWinD aims to start electricity production in the wind farm in the first quarter of 2013, provided that all required permits are granted.
The Myllykangas Wind Farm is a remarkable addition to WinWinD’s wind turbine deliveries in Finland, and it enables more effective servicing of the wind farms. The domestic content of the project is high.
“The wind energy project will have a positive impact on the employment and entrepreneurial activity of the area. The wind turbines for the wind farm 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.
