Hummastinvaara wind farm project
Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy is planning to build a wind farm of 10–15 wind turbines in the Hummastinvaara area in the City of Raahe. The number of wind turbines will be specified during further planning of the project.
The Hummastinvaara wind farm area is located on the eastern side of the City of Raahe, at a distance of about 10 km from the town centre. The eastern part of the area also extends to the municipality of Siikajoki.
The EIA procedure for the project was completed in 2013. A joint environmental impact assessment was carried out on the wind power areas located on the eastern parts of Raahe, with Hummastinvaara being one of them. The assessment took into account all the environmental impacts and the joint impacts of the projected wind farms. The results of the assessment are used in further planning and zoning of the project. The EIA documents (only in Finnish) can be viewed through the following link:
The zoning process for the Hummastinvaara wind power project is at its initial stage, and the participation and assessment scheme will be available after its completion. The progress of the zoning process (only in Finnish) can be followed through the following link:
