Finland's largest wind farm to be built in Pori

The town of Pori on the Western coast of Finland will soon be home to Finland’s largest wind farm.

Finnish developer, Tulliwatti will construct a 54 MW wind power facility just to the north of the town of Pori. Commercial operation is expected by the end of summer 2015. The project is a joint venture between Finnish utilities St1 and S-Voima who are investing a combined total of 75 million EUR to build the project.

A total of twelve 4.5 MW wind turbines will be built on the site. The wind turbine supplier has not yet been announced.

The Pori region of western Finland is of prime significance for Tuuliwatti. Tuuliwatti began wind power production in the area with a 3 MW facility back in 2010. Tuuliwatti is also constructing wind power plants in other parts of the region.
