The Swedish utility OX2 and Finnish Tuulialfa have agreed to develop and construct onshore wind farms in both Lapland and Northern Ostrobothnia. The agreement covers a total of six projects spread across northern Finland with a total of 150 wind turbines to be installed, writes OX2 in a press release. 

Tuulialfa is charged with project development, while OX2 will head financing, procurement, construction and operation.

”According to Fingrid’s forecast, electricity consumption in Finland will increase 82TWh to 136TWh by 2030. The project entity responds to the growing need created by future electricity consumption and further strengthens our project portfolio of approximately five gigawatts of onshore wind power,” says Veli-Pekka Alkula, Project Development Director for onshore wind power at OX2, in the statement.

Tuulialfa is also excited about the partnership.

”We are very pleased with the long-term agreement with Europe’s most significant onshore wind power developer. The cooperation complements Tuulialfa’s expertise in an excellent way. Now, together with OX2, we can also prepare the construction and production phase of the projects already in the permit phase. This speeds up the progress of projects into functional wind farms that benefit regions and society,” says Tuulialfa CEO Antti Tanskanen.
