ABB's power products for Finland's largest wind farm

provide efficient and reliable turbine operation

The first stage of Finland's largest wind farm, Kemi Ajos in Northern Finland, became fully operational in 2008. The wind farm, constructed and owned by PVO-Innopower, has 10 three-megawatt turbines (onshore and offshore) with a total production capacity of 30 megawatts. It is connected to the national grid by an 11 kilometer, 110 kilovolt power line. ABB delivered generators and frequency converters to all wind turbines in the project as well as substations and transformers. With its 20 years of experience, ABB serves wind power customers at every stage of a project. ABB's offering includes everything from components for wind turbines to power plant solutions, including electrical design, substation construction, project management, and installation and commissioning.
