Elme Metal has signed a component supply contract with its long-standing partner, one of Estonia’s leading wind farm developers, Nordecon Betoon, for wind turbine foundations for the new Sopi-Tootsi wind farm currently under construction in Pärnu County.
Under this project, the Elme Metall prefabrication and service centre in Vilnius will produce around 4,000 tonnes of various straight rebar components for 38 wind turbines.
The largest 255-MW wind farm in the Baltic countries will be ready by the end of 2024. The Sopi-Tootsi wind farm will almost double the amount of wind power currently produced in Estonia. The volume of electricity produced there will cover 8.5% of Estonia’s annual electricity consumption and 40% of households’ electricity needs.
The Sopi-Tootsi wind farm will be operated by Enefit Green – the largest wind power producer in the Baltics and a subsidiary of Eesti Energia, a company owned by the Estonian state.
