Peikko Group’s Finnish subsidiary Peikko Finland Oy delivers foundations to the Jouttikallio wind park in Lapua, Western Finland. Peikko’s turnkey delivery comprises foundation design, components and installation including concreting. The deliveries and installation start in mid April and the foundations will be ready by the end of May.
The Jouttikallio Wind Park is developed by OX2. Empower is responsible for the construction and planning of the project. Peikko subcontracts the foundations for Empower. Vestas supplies the six 3.45 MW turbines with hub heights of 147 meters. The turbines are installed in the autumn and the wind park will be operational in the end of 2016.
”We are pleased to again cooperate with Empower in a wind park project. We have continued the optimization of steel and concrete used in our foundation solution, as well as the adapting of our solution to varying types of soils. Cost effectiveness combined with a fast and flexible design-component production-delivery-installation chain was decisive in this project,” tells Esa Rusila, Managing Director of Peikko Finland Oy.
