Land acquired for utility-scale wind farm in Northern Finland

The Finnish daily newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat reported last week that the Finnish municipality of Posio signed a lease agreement for a large wind farm project in Northern Finland.

Details are scant at the moment but it seems that the proposed wind farm will be located 35 kilometres from the city of Rovaniemi. According to the municipality of Posio they have acquired enough land to construct 30 to 40 utility-scale wind turbines. The total investment required is between 140 - 180 million EUR.

The municipality intends to start pre-feasibility assessments in the near future.
