Our largest wind farm under development is the Korsnäs offshore wind farm. Its rated power would be at least 1,300 megawatts. In the land areas, we currently have four own wind farms in active project development, as well as one joint project with Neova Group, two joint projects with ABO Wind and one joint project with Pohjan Voima.
Our project development meets the demanding international standards – 650 MW of developed and divested projects of which more than 450 MW already in operation or under construction.
Wind power project development has been part of Metsähallitus’ responsible business since the beginning of the 2010s. Our first wind farm development was a 22-turbine Myllykangas project in Ii municipality. The land use plan was accepted in 2012, and the wind farm was constructed by Taaleri Oyj. Since Myllykangas, we have successfully fully developed and divested or co-developed several wind farm projects.
138 wind power turbins have been installed on Metsähallitus’ lands (03/2022). This chapter also includes power plants installed on land by Metsähallitus by other project developers. The number of power plants in Metsähallitus’ project development projects is not the same as the power plants installed / to be installed on Metsähallitus’ land from Metsähallitus’ project development, because Metsähallitus has also developed wind power plants on the land of other landowners.
