Commissioning of a new 45 MW wind park in Estonia

Estonian energy companies Eesti Energia and Nelja Energia opened jointly a new wind farm, Paldiski wind farm, at the northern end of Pakri peninsula with a capacity of 45 MW.

Along with the older Pakri wind park, this park covers the needs of the equivalent of 50,000 average Estonian households. The 18 wind turbines of 2.5 MW were provided by GE WindEnergy (Germany). The total cost of construction of the Paldiski wind farm was €62m. Eesti Energia currently operates four wind farms: Paldiski, Aulepa, Narva and Virtsu, with a total capacity of 111 MW.
