Kalajoki/Dresden (renewablepress) - The Juurakko wind farm, located in Finland’s North Ostrobothnia region, has started producing cleanly generated electricity.

The Juurakko wind farm has seven wind turbines with a total capacity of 40 MW, enough to reliably supply 36,000 households with green energy. The wind farm was developed and built by VSB Uusiutuva Energia Suomi Oy, the Finnish subsidiary of the international project developer VSB. The park is owned by Helen and the Ålandsbanken Wind Power Special Investment Fund. The wind farm was inaugurated on 2 November 2022.

Construction of the 40 MW wind farm started in the spring of 2021, using turbine technology from manufacturer Nordex, which together with VSB built the N163/5.X model for the first time in Finland. In order to deliver consistently strong yields even in Nordic weather conditions, the model is equipped with an anti-icing system as a cold-climate variant.

“This was the VSB Group’s first project in Finland. Thanks to the smooth and transparent cooperation with decision makers from the town of Kalajoki, landowners, contractors and Nordex, as well as Helen and Ålandsbanken, the project was successfully completed on time,” said Jean-Marc Bazenet, Chief International Officer of VSB Group. “We are proud to contribute to Finland’s goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2035 and are committed to driving the energy transition in the country with further wind projects,” Bazenet added.

In addition to the Juurakko wind farm, Helen, together with the Ålandsbanken Wind Power Special Investment Fund, acquired the Karahka wind farm, with a capacity of approximately 150 MW, from the VSB Group in July 2022. It is currently under construction, with commissioning planned for 2024.
