Finsilva and Eolus to Develop +600 MW Wind Power in Finland

Eolus has signed a cooperation agreement with Finnish landowner and forest and nature capital company Finsilva for development of five wind power projects with a potential for more than 600 MW in total. The projects are in early development phase with potential for developing at a rapid pace. The project areas are located in central Finland where the possibilities of connecting the wind farms to the grid are favourable. Commissioning is estimated to take place from 2027 onwards.

The partnership means that Finsilva will lease land to Eolus who will develop and realize the projects.

"Finsilva’s strategy is to generate economic, social and ecological well-being from nature. Creating facilities for renewable energy, such as wind power, is an important part of that.

"Finsilva will contribute land infrastructure to the projects in a revenue-sharing context. We want to be at the forefront in the responsible utilisation of natural capital and that’s why we’re looking for competent and skilled partners like Eolus," says Juha Hakkarainen, CEO of Finsilva.

"We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Finsilva, one of Finland’s largest landowners. Our resources and competences complement each other, and we are very much looking forward to start developing the projects.

"We have a strong and growing local organization in Finland with the capabilities needed for taking the projects through development, permitting and construction," says Per Witalisson, CEO of Eolus.

At the end of 2022, Eolus had approximately 3,700 MW projects under development in Finland, of which the majority was offshore wind. The five new projects will be included in Eolus’s project portfolio in Q2 2023 and thereby grow Eolus’s portfolio in Finland significantly.
