‘This is already our third wind farm in Raahe. After completion of Annankangas and the Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm, our production capacity increases to nearly 150 MW,’ says Toni Sulameri, Managing Director for Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy.

‘The recently completed Nikkarinkaarto wind farm in Raahe was constructed within a year, according to schedule and budget,’ says Harri Suutari, Project Manager for Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy, responsible for the Annankangas wind farm project.
