About the project
The Lestijärvi wind power project is located in the municipality of Lestijärvi, Finland.
The wind farm will consist of 69 wind turbines with a total capacity of 455,4 MW. The maximum height of the turbines will be 240 meters. The estimated annual production of the wind farm is over 1.3 TWh which is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of about 280,000 households (5,000 kWh/household). The estimated yearly output corresponds to approximately two per cent of Finland’s total electricity production in 2020.
The construction of the Lestijärvi wind farm started in November 2021. The wind farm is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2024 and starts operating early 2025. Once completed, the wind farm will be handed over to its owners Kymppivoima, Oulun Energia and Kuopion Energia. OX2 will be responsible for the technical and commercial management of the wind farm after construction.

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.
