Korsnäs Offshore Wind Farm
Metsähallitus' Climate Programme promotes the attainment of Finland's climate targets and transition to a carbon-neutral society by 2035 through increasing carbon sinks, carbon storage and clean energy production as well as by cutting emissions. In line with this, we are developing an offshore wind farm, 15−30 km off the coast of Korsnäs municipality, on the west coast of Finland.
In this project, Metsähallitus operates both as a project developer for wind power and as an issuer and lessor of reservation and right-of-use agreements. We are looking for a partner whose expertise is in building and operating the wind power business once the project is completed in the late 2020s. The partner must meet our responsibility criteria.
The planned nominal capacity of the Korsnäs offshore wind farm is at least 1,300 megawatts. Total wind power capacity amounted approximately to 2,500 MW in Finland in the end of 2020.
