Korpi-Matti wind farm project
Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy together with Gigawatti Oy and EPV Tuulivoima Oy is planning a wind farm of 22 wind turbines in Merikarvia. Hyötytuuli ´s share is 7 turbines, 1/3 of the project.
Merikarvia is a coastal municipality located between the towns of Pori and Kristiinankaupunki. The wind farm will be located north of the centre of Merikarvia, in the area of Korpi-Matti on the eastern side of Rantatie and Trolssinkylä, reaching close to the villages of Riispyy and Timmerheidi. The area is bordered by the Mankaneva Natura 2000 area on its north-eastern side.
The EIA procedure for the project was completed in 2012. The results of the environmental impact assessment have been utilised in the design and land use planning of the project.
The implementation of the Korpi-Matti project requires a component master plan permitting wind farm construction in the area. The component master plan was approved by Merikarvia local authorities in December 2019 and it has legal force.
