Finnish developer Ilmatar Energy has placed a 74-megawatt capacity order with Vestas for the Voimamylly and Rasakangas wind projects, set to be located in the country's southwest and central region, respectively, Vestas announced on Monday.
Deliveries for both projects are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021 while commissioning is planned for the first quarter of 2022.
With this deal, Vestas reinforces its presence in Finland's wind market, where they have installed roughly 400 wind turbines with a total capacity of almost 1.3 gigawatts to date with approximately an additional 1 gigawatt currently under construction.
"With these two orders, Ilmatar has reached a significant milestone in its journey from a developer to an Independent Power Producer. Our solid track record of growth supports the transition to a more sustainable future - and we are proud to continue this journey together with Vestas, our long-standing partner in wind turbines," Juha Sarsama, CEO of Ilmatar said.
