April 6 (Renewables Now) - Finnish wind power producer Suomen Hyotytuuli Oy has taken an investment decision on the construction of a 93-MW wind farm in the Satakunta region of Western Finland.

The Oosinselka project will be realised at a cost of around EUR 115 million (USD 125.4m), with no subsidies to be used, the Finnish developer said on Tuesday.

To be installed in the municipalities of Pori and Eurajoki, the wind park will be powered by 15 of the V162-6.2 MW turbines of Vestas Wind System’s EnVentus platform. Five of the machines will be located in Pori and the rest in Eurajoki.

Suomen Hyotytuuli intends to start construction works this spring and bring the plant online at the end of 2023. The company said it is currently holding talks with contractors.

In its home market, Suomen Hyotytuuli has two other subsidy-free wind projects – the 50-MW Polusjarvi wind farm in Pyhajoki and the 81-MW Alajoki-Peuralinna park in Perho and Kyyjarvi. Together with Oosinselka, the three plants will lift the company's wind power capacity to more than 400 MW, it noted.
