Wind farm for Estonia peninsula

Eesti Energia and GE Energy have signed an agreement for the construction of a new wind farm on Estonia’s Pakri peninsula at Paldiski. Completion is scheduled in 2012.

The wind farm will consist of nine turbines with a total generating capacity of 22.5 MW. Annual electricity generation at the wind farm is estimated will be 67 GWh.

Total investment is estimated at EUR33m ($47m).

Eesti Energia said that the agreement with GE Energy covers the construction of the foundations and the assembly of the wind turbines on the site.

The main grid connection substation has already been constructed by Skanska, while the civil engineering works tender for the wind farm will be finalized this summer.

Construction of the Paldiski wind farm is in line with Eesti Energia’s long-term strategy of reducing the group’s carbon dioxide emissions. The investment will also capitalize on the excellent wind conditions of the Pakri peninsula.
