posted in: Current Wind, cool Ball | 0

The wind power company VindIn has now received a building permit for five wind turbines in Svalskulla.
The project is VindIns first in Ostrobothnia that reaches the building permit status.

During the autumn, procurement of turbines will begin and in the spring, construction of roads and foundations is planned. In the autumn of 2014, it is expected that the wind turbines will be able to be erected and put into full operation. With the accumulated experience from Svalskulla, VindIn intends to proceed with investigations and development of other wind power projects in Närpes. All project areas are judged to have good wind resources and are located far from residential buildings. At present, active forestry is conducted there.
