Skyborn Renewables has been granted exclusive rights by Metsähallitus, a state-owned organization, for a wind energy project located offshore in Finland.
Under a reservation agreement, Metsähallitus has given Skyborn a five-year exclusivity period to develop the Pooki offshore wind farm.
The development activities for the project are planned to begin as soon as August 2023.
“We are honoured to have secured this exclusive five-year reservation agreement to develop Pooki offshore wind farm.
“It is a significant milestone for Skyborn and reinforces our confidence in the potential of offshore wind in Finland. Working alongside Metsähallitus, we are excited with this opportunity to participate in Finland’s transition towards a renewable future,” said Skyborn chief executive Thomas Karst.
Metsähallitus property development director Tuomas Hallenberg added: “Finland is committed to expanding the capacity of emission-free energy through the rapid deployment of offshore wind.
“We welcome Skyborn Renewables to contribute to this development and strengthen fossil-free energy production in the country.”
The Pooki site, located near the previous Suurhiekka undertaking, is positioned in the Bothnian Bay within Finnish jurisdiction. It is situated 25 kilometers away from the coastline, in an average water depth of 20 meters.
According to Skyborn, once it is built, this project will establish the benchmarks for offshore wind farms in Northern Finland. The proposal entails installing approximately 100 wind turbines, with a collective capacity exceeding 2 gigawatts.
