Siikajoki wind farm projects
Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy is planning a wind farm of 38 wind turbines in Siikajoki: Karhukangas wind farm area 12 turbines, Kangastuuli area 21 turbines and Navettakangas area 5 turbines.
The Karhukangas wind farm area is located in North Ostrobothnia, on the western side of the municipality of Siikajoki. The distance from the planning area to the Siikajoki center is about 12 km to south-east, to the Revonlahti village about 5 km to east, to the Siikajoki village about 10 km to north and to the town center of Raahe about 15 km to west.
The wind farm would consist of the wind turbines and their groundwork, underground cable connecting the turbines, wind farm power station, 110 kV overhead cables for connecting to the electric power transmission network and of the maintenance roads.
Suomen Hyötytuuli received a statement on the EIA program in May 2015 and public authority has given its statement relating to it 11.4.2016.
The implementation of the Karhukangas project requires a component master plan permitting wind farm construction in the area. The component master plan was approved by Siikajoki local authorities 2 November 2016 and it has legal force. The building permits of Karhukangas wind farm, Kangastuuli wind farm and Navettakangas wind farm have legal force.
