The need for energy is increasing strongly. Wind power has been globally the most rapidly growing form of energy production for a couple of decades already, and the growth is expected to continue in the coming years. We contribute to developing renewable energy forms with our own wind power projects, innovative infrastructure solutions for wind power farms and a service concept that covers the entire life-cycle of wind power plants.
Our comprehensive service concept supports the customer from the project development phase until production use. We help find the right solutions from the development phases of wind farms. Our competence covers the development of wind farms, starting from the selection of a suitable location. We develop the project and acquire permits for it in cooperation with the municipality and local land owners. In the implementation phase, our offering covers project management, earthworks, wind power foundation solutions and electrical engineering, including the responsibility for design.
We have implemented almost 100 wind power station foundation for our customers since 2010. YIT has the competence required for the implementation of infrastructure for small and larger wind farms.

The project consists of 72 wind power stations with a total capacity of approximately 300 MW. The project consists of three adjacent areas, each with their own finalised master plan. The total planning area is approximately 6,000 hectares. The building permit application process was started in early 2019. To transmit the electricity generated in the wind farm, a new 400-kV transmission line will be constructed from Lestijärvi to Alajärvi next to the current Fingrid transmission lines.
YIT to sell Finland’s largest wind power project to OX2
The Murtomäki wind farm developed by YIT was sold to the Ålandsbanken Wind Power Fund complete with the required permits. The project consists of 15 wind power stations with a total capacity of approximately 65 MW. The project area of the wind farm is approximately 1,400 hectares.
Murtomäki wind farm, Pyhäjärvi
The project consists of seven wind turbines with a total capacity of approximately 45 MW. The project was sold complete with the required permits in the fall of 2019. The project area of the wind farm is approximately 750 hectares.
The project consists of 5-8 wind power stations with a total capacity of approximately 25-40 MW. The project's continuation is under study.
