The Finnish Government adopted a government resolution to launch the tendering procedure for five offshore wind farm projects on public water areas. With the government resolution, Metsähallitus will immediately launch the process to select the implementing partners for two offshore wind power projects.
 
The competitive tendering procedures to be launched this year will concern the offshore wind power projects located off Närpiö and off Pyhäjoki and Raahe on the west coast of Finland. The Edith project will be located in the sea area belonging to Närpiö and the Ebba project in the sea areas off Pyhäjoki and Raahe. The municipalities have approved the planning proposals for the projects, and the preliminary studies launched by Metsähallitus are progressing. The total planned capacity of the Edith and Ebba offshore wind power projects will be approximately 3,000 MW. The total investment value of the projects is estimated to be EUR 6–8 billion. Once completed, the projects are estimated to produce up to 14 TWh of clean electricity annually.
 
The implementation of the process for the other three areas will be confirmed in 2024. The tendering process is estimated to take about a year. The actual decision on granting the right of use to the selected project partner will be made by the Government after the tender procedure.
