Skarta starts building a wind farm for Puhuri – a third common project for markets in clean energy


Skarta, a builder of a clean future, starts a new cooperation project with a wind farm developer Puhuri Oy in Kannus, Central Ostrobothnia.

Skarta starts the construction work of the Kaukanen wind farm in September. Electrical work, roads and foundations will be completed in July 2022, and the wind farm will begin to produce electricity at the end of 2022. A total of eight power plants will be built, and the nominal power of the wind farm will be approximately 45 megawatts. The annual production corresponds to the electricity consumption of roughly 8 000 electrically heated detached houses. The total value of the project is around seven million euros.

“Environmentally friendly energy currently has a huge growth rate. Yet five years ago the situation was totally different. The shift is mainly a result of the giant leap forward in wind power technology, which has made it also financially rational to build wind farms. There is no longer need for feed-in tariffs, as the building of wind farms in a market-based way is profitable. We are currently planning roughly ten new projects and some of them are already ready to be build in terms of permissions”, says Jaakko Tyyvi, Construction Manager at Puhuri.

Skarta delivers the wind power project for Puhuri as a Balance of Plant (BoP) project. In practice, this means that Skarta is responsible for everything else than wind turbines in construction of the wind farm. Skarta makes extensive use of the expertise of the whole group in specialized construction, infrastructure construction, and energy projects, and group companies Skarta Energy, Skarta Infra and Skarta Finland are participating in the project.

“The building of clean energy is at a significant growth, and it is great to take the industry forward together. Puhuri is one of the leading wind power producers in Finland, so as a pioneer of our own industry it is a pleasure to get to start this third common clean energy project with them “, says Anssi Koski, Director of BoP business line at Skarta.

Skarta was chosen to be a main constructor through a tendering process. Tyyvi says that more than ten companies participated in the process. An invitation was sent to those who were known to be capable of carrying out this wide-ranging work with all stages from excavation work to cable installations and demanding concrete castings. Skarta already has two ongoing wind farm projects with Puhuri – in Parhalahti, Pyhäjoki, and in Hankilanneva, Haapavesi.

Skarta has a long and extensive experience in excavation and foundation works of more than a hundred wind power plants. “We have the competence, the ambition and the technology, such as control systems, at a high level. With this crew it is good to further develop the solutions in clean energy”, concludes Anssi Koski.

Skarta Energy och Tohmajärvi kommun inleder samarbete – Planerar östra Finlands största energiprojekt13.9.2022 11:44:47 EEST | Tiedote

Skarta Energy Oy, del av SkartaNYAB, som genomför rena energilösningar, och Tohmajärvi kommun planerar sol- och vindparker i Tohmajärvi. För detta ändamål har bolaget och kommunen ingått en avsiktsförklaring genom vilket möjligheterna att bygga förnybar energi i Tohmajärvi kartläggs. Genom kartläggningarna utreds byggandet av flera sol- och vindparker samt områden som lämpar sig för byggandet av dem. Parkernas sammanlagda effekt ska vara 60 MW, och om projektet genomförs är detta det största energiprojektet i hela östra Finland. ”Den energi som produceras med hjälp av solkraft och vindkraft är helt förnybar och tillsammans stöder dessa energiformer varandra utmärkt. I det projekt som planeras utnyttjas också Skartas Vierivoima®-lösningar som stärker tillgången på ren energi till ett konkurrenskraftigt pris i regionen. Lösningen möjliggör också en snabb övergång till användning av väte i Tohmajärvi-området när behovet blir aktuellt”, säger Vikke Saarelainen, vice verkställande direktör

Skarta and Tohmajärvi municipality to begin cooperation – Eastern Finland’s largest energy project under planning13.9.2022 10:05:05 EEST | Press release

Clean energy solution provider Skarta Energy Oy and Tohmajärvi municipality are planning solar and wind farms for Tohmajärvi. For this purpose, the company and the municipality have signed a letter of intent to map out the possibilities of renewable energy construction in the Tohmajärvi area. The mapping investigates the construction of several solar and wind parks as well as the areas suitable for their construction. The combined total power of the parks would be 60 MW and, if realised, the project would be the largest energy project in Eastern Finland. “The energy produced by solar and wind power is completely renewable, and together these forms of energy support each other perfectly. The planned project also utilises Skarta’s Near Energy® solutions which increase the availability of competitively priced, clean energy in the area. The solution also enables the Tohmajärvi area to quickly transition to the use of hydrogen when the need becomes relevant,” says Vikke Saarelainen, Executi
