About the project
The Ajos wind farm is located in front of the port of Ajos in Kemi, Finland.
The wind farm consists of 13 wind turbines. Eight of the turbines have been constructed on artificial islands and breakwaters and five of them on land. The size of the artificial islands is about 30×50 meters and the water depth around the islands is about 3-8 meters.
The total capacity of the wind turbines constructed on land is 3.2 MW. The total capacity of the wind turbines constructed on artificial islands and breakwaters is 3.3 MW. The maximum height of the wind turbines is 150 meters. The current wind turbines were erected in 2016 and 2017 replacing the previous WinWinD turbines.
The estimated annual production of the wind farm is 16 GWh which is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of about 32,000 households (5,000 kWh/household).

OX2 and our suppliers are guests in the local communities. For us, is extremely important to create dialogue with and show respect for the people who live and work in the local area. This includes transparent communication, creating local jobs, business sector development or financial grants through community funds or property tax, depending on the market and conditions in the area.
The expansion of renewable energy should not come at the expense of nature and it is not enough for us to mitigate climate change. We have long worked to minimize our negative impact on nature and are now taking decisive action towards our goal of nature-positive wind and solar farms by 2030.
Our projects are sustainable by design, from early planning to construction and management.
It is possible to hike, hunt, or pick berries and mushrooms in the wind farm area, with respect to the area's warning signs and prevailing weather conditions. Caution should be observed in certain weather conditions. It is unsafe to be near the wind turbines during thunderstorms and when there is a risk of ice or snow falling from the wind turbines. Therefore, please pay attention to the local weather conditions. Ice accumulation on wind turbines occurs at temperatures just above 0 °C and colder, especially during snowfall or when the turbine is covered with fog or clouds. A safety distance of at least 300 m should be maintained to each wind turbine during these conditions.
Ajoksen tuulipuiston repowering-hanke
Ajoksen tuulipuisto on ensimmäinen laaja tuulipuiston uudistushanke Suomessa. Hankkeessa tuulipuisto uudistettiin ja kymmenen vanhaa tuulivoimalaa korvattiin 13 modernilla tuulivoimalalla. Tuulipuisto luovutettiin IKEA Suomelle syksyllä 2017. Katso videoltamme, kuinka uudistushanke toteutettiin.
