Swedish developer Eolus Vind is investigating the prerequisites for constructing two offshore wind farms in the Bothnian Sea offshore Finland.

Eolus has applied for permission to the Finnish government to investigate the conditions for establishing offshore wind power projects located in Finland’s exclusive economic zone.

Permission for the investigation is expected within the coming year. One of the sea areas is located 90 kilometres from the coast off Pori, and the other 30 kilometres from the coast off Merikarvia.

The total capacity of the two offshore wind farms is 3.5 GW, which means 14-16 terawatt hours (TWh) of renewable electricity for the Finnish electricity grid annually. In 2021, 8.1 TWh of electricity was produced with wind power in Finland.

The capacity of the Wellamo offshore wind farm planned offshore Pori is estimated to have an annual production capacity of approximately 2 GW. The capacity of the Tuulia offshore wind farm planned for the area off Merikarvia will be 1.5 GW.
