First-of-its-kind Wind Project Delivered By World Kinect Energy Services Helps Finland Achieve Key Sustainability Milestone

  • Nuolivaara wind farm is the second wind project that World Kinect Energy Services (WKES) and wpd Europe have collaborated on in Finland, and the first to be located north of the Arctic Circle

  • With a total capacity of 96.9 MW, WKES will manage the power output of the wind farm, while also acting as Balancing Responsible Party

  • All Balancing Responsible Party (BRP) services related to production, consumption and bilateral trade will be delivered by WKES

  • Nuolivaara wind farm power output will be structured to meet the baseload needs of two corporate off-takers

The new Nuolivaara wind farm, which is scheduled to get operational within 2022, will serve as a key milestone in Finland’s long-term sustainable energy program. A route-to-power purchase agreement (PPA) paved the way for the development of the wind project located in Nuolivaara, Finland – the first of its kind located north the Arctic circle.

The project is an extension of a partnership between energy and sustainability solutions provider, World Kinect Energy Services (WKES), and renewable energy developer and operator, wpd Europe (wpd)

It’s the second PPA between the two parties and follows the development of the 188 MW Karhunnevankangas wind farm in the Österbotten region of western Finland last year.

Located 25km northeast of Kemijärvi, Finland, the new wind farm will generate a total capacity of 96.9 MW, reinforcing the nation’s commitment to providing renewable energy solutions.

The completion of the project will coincide with the activation of the broader partnership between the two parties, which will see WKES route the physical output of the wind farm and nominate baseload volumes to the wind farm off-takers.

WKES will manage the residual power output according to pre-defined bespoke strategies towards the Nordic electricity exchange traded market, while also acting as Balancing Responsible Party for the wind farm.

All BRP services related to production, consumption and bilateral trade will be delivered by WKES, who will also have responsibility for the associated REMIT reporting.

“Having World Kinect Energy Services on board, using its expertise and knowledge of the local markets to negotiate the Route-to-Market PPA, has helped reinforce the Nuolivaara project, which is due for completion in July.”

Stuart Donnelly, Senior Director, Global Renewable Energy Solutions, at World Kinect Energy Services, said: “We are excited to continue to support wpd europe as it further expands its wind farm projects in Finland and help lead the sustainable energy transition in Northern Europe.”

“Sustainability is a key priority for us, and with our regional experience and knowledge of local markets, we are in a good position to deliver value to wpd and other renewable energy developers, as well as customers exploring renewable energy,” he added.

As a leading energy management, energy supply, and sustainability company, WKES has supported the development and marketing of many onsite and utility-scale wind and solar projects.

The new wind farm features 17 Delta4000-series N163/5.7 wind turbines, designed for 5.7 MW output and manufactured by Nordex.
