A German turbine manufacturer has announced the completion of a 21.6MW wind farm (pictured) in Finland ahead of schedule.

The Honkajoki plant, located in south-west Finland, includes nine turbines and has been connected to the grid for Finnish wealth management company Taaleritehdas.

Mounted on steel tube towers with a height of 120 metres, the turbines have the capacity to generate of up to 75GWh of electricity every year. Due to the earlier completion of the project, the wind farm generated energy earlier than expected, allowing Taaleritehdas to tap into the “early bird premium” for wind power generated before 2016.

Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of Nordex SE’s Management Board said: “This marks a real success for our new activities in Finland and creates an excellent basis for future projects with Taaleritehdas.”

Earlier this week Britain officially opened the second largest offshore wind farm in the world.
