Noise concerns suspend wind farm project  

Credit:  YLE | yle.fi 26 September 2012 ~~

The Fortum energy company has suspended plans for a new wind power farm at Loviisa. Plans were put on hold because of concerns about high noise levels.

A review of the noise that would be generated by the wind farm under Fortum’s plan was found to be in excess of night-time limits set by the Ministry of the Environment.

The plan calls for the wind farm to be located within about 600 meters of the closest holiday home in the projected area. Altogether, no more than three, approximately 3MW wind power units were to be grouped at the site.

The project has not been cancelled and more time will be put into further developing plans.
