Enercon E-92 Project To Be Installed In Finland

Monday, February 04, 2013

Contract signed/development activities take off in country

ENERCON is to install the fi rst E-92 wind turbines in Finland this year. A contract to this effect was recently signed with the Finnish power supply company, Kotkan Energia Oy and construction is scheduled to start at the end of September.

For this project ENERCON will be installing two turbines from their new high-yield 2.3 MW series (98 m hub height) at the Mussalo Harbour, in Kotka located on the coast of the Gulf of Finland approx. 130 kilometres east of the Finnish capital, Helsinki. Wind conditions at this site are considered as exceptionally good. «For Finnish standards, this is an outstanding location,» says Nils Borstelmann, ENERCON Sales Manager for Finland. The two E-92 machines in Kotka are expected to generate a total annual output of roughly 17 million kilowatt hours.

With this project, ENERCON is progressively stepping up its activities in Finland. Since Germany‘s leading wind turbine manufacturer opened its new Sales offi ce in Helsinki, they have upped the number of employees there. The reason for these positive developments is the new framework conditions for wind energy projects in Finland. In 2011, the country introduced new feed-in tariffs, which signifi cantly improved investment conditions for wind energy projects. Furthermore, the Finnish government has set ambitious objectives for the development of wind energy. By 2020, Finland wants to have installed an aggregate wind generator capacity of 2,500 MW. At the end of 2012, the total installed capacity was only at 288 MW. Experts expect a rapid growth in the Finnish wind energy market so that the country can achieve its renewable energy goals set for 2020.
