About the project

Laine offshore wind power project is located in the economic zone adjacent to the cities of Kokkola and Pietarsaari. The area of the wind farm is about 450 km2, and its distance to the mainland is about 30 km, to Pietarsaari about 32 km, and to the nearest island 24 km (Torsön). 

Laine will comprise a maximum of 150 wind turbines with an annual electricity production of approximately 11 TWh. This is more than the amount of electricity produced by the Olkiluoto 2 nuclear power plant in 2020 (7.3 TWh). 

An environmental impact assessment procedure is implemented in the project. In addition to the environmental impact assessment, a special exploration permit is required for the commencement of projects and the conduct of seabed surveys in the offshore EEZ. OX2 filed exploration permit applications with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment in May 2021 and received the exploration permit in January 2022.  

What's next?

The project’s environmental impact assessment process is underway. The permit procedures and surveys related to the project are expected to last until the end of 2025, and the actual construction could start in 2029. Electricity production will not start until the 2030s.
