Our references

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.

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.

One of our latest references is the ~211 MW Piiparinmäki project, construction of which has already started by Ilmatar Energy Oy based on a PPA agreement with Google.

91 wind power turbins have been installed on Metsähallitus’ lands (2019). 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.
