This deal represents the largest construction project ABO Wind has undertaken from planning to turnkey. The project will consist of 14 Vesta V162 turbines with a hub height of 169 meters. Construction is due to begin in Q3 of this year, with a view to becoming operational by autumn 2023. The project will be the fourth the company has built in the Haapajarvi region this year. The wind farm will be able to supply electricity to over 80,500 houses and is a cornerstone in Finland's goal to accelerate renewable energy production.
