EPV Windpower Ltd – a strong Finnish enterprise
EPV Windpower was established in 2007 to prepare wind power projects especially in the Ostrobothnia region. It is fully owned by EPV Energy Ltd which, in turn, is owned by several Finnish energy companies. Our strategic goal is to increase the entire Group’s emission-free energy generation step by step.
EPV Windpower operates two completed wind farms built by the company:
● Torkkola wind farm, Vaasa
● Santavuori wind farm, Ilmajoki
We are also building a wind farm consisting of 34 wind turbines in the district of Metsälä in Kristiinankaupunki and two wind turbines in Paskoonharju in Teuva.
How and where will wind farms be built?
The location of wind farms is influenced by many different factors, such as wind measurements, land use, nature values and distance to the electricity network. Individual wind turbines are always built well away from residential areas and important natural sites.
The final size of wind farms and the position of individual turbines may still change during environmental impact assessment and the zoning process. The turbine types are selected on the basis of, e.g. wind measurements. All of our turbines represent the latest technology.
