Siemens will supply, install and commission 10 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 4MW and a rotor diameter of 130 meters, for the Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea.

The customer is Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy, a wind power producer owned by eight Finnish utilities. Installation of the wind turbines is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017, with the start of operations expected by autumn 2017. Siemens will also be responsible for servicing the wind turbines. Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm is located approx. 0.5 to 3 kilometres from shore in water from 8 to 15 metres deep. The wind turbines will be mounted on specially designed, gravity-based steel foundations in order to withstand heavy ice loading. The government of Finland is also contributing € 20 million toward the demonstration project in icing conditions.
