VindIn's owners have decided to invest in Svalskulla wind power projects.
It is the first in a series of wind power investments in the city of Närpes. In addition to Svalskulla, planned investments are distributed over six wind farms of varying sizes. Svalskulla wind farm is an investment of approximately EUR 25 million and includes five turbines with absolutely latest technology to minimize disturbances to the environment.
At the same time, VindIn is now opening an office on Närpesvägen and recruiting a person for local dialogue and administration. This is the first employment of a number of future direct and indirect permanent jobs needed in the city of Närpes, as more parks get their permits and can be realized.
Behind VindIn are some of the Nordic region's most electricity-intensive and capital-intensive industrial companies. The companies will operate the wind farms themselves for at least 20 years to increase the supply of renewable electricity in the Nordic market.
