Vestas has received a 30 MW order for Finland

Malm

This time for delivery of 10 units for the Tervola project. The new order has a total capacity of 30 MW and the turbines will be installed in the municipality of Tervola in the province of Lapland, Finland. Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to begin in September 2012 and be completed by March 2013.

Finland has recently taken steps to enhance the development of renewable energy. A feed-in tariff system for renewable energy was launched earlier this year, and Finland has a renewable energy target to produce 6 TWh from wind power by 2020. This requires a capacity of approx 2,500 MW.

"TuuliWatti Oy has once again proved that they are a frontrunner in developing wind power in Finland. We are incredibly pleased with our partnership with TuuliWatti Oy and their trust means a lot to us. We look forward to a continued close cooperation on the coming project. The Vestas V112-3.0 MW turbines have been the preferred choice since they are an excellent match with the Finnish wind regimes," says Krister Poole J
