Finnish-Swedish law firm Hannes Snellman will be engaged by Finnish state-owned company Metsähallitus in the Korsnäs offshore wind farm project.

The law firm said in a release that the Real Assets Service group will handle the task. The anticipated minimum nominal capacity of the wind farm project is 1300 MW, which will consist of 70-100 turbines of 12-20 MW each.

Metsähallitus is a Finnish state forestry company with an ambitious goal of developing the Korsnäs offshore wind farm, located 15 km off the coast of the municipality of the same name, in the waters of the Baltic Sea. The offshore wind farm could be operational as early as in 2028 in a water area managed by the company itself. The area is listed in the Maritime Land Use Plan with designation for power generation. The municipality of Korsnäs has already approved the proposed plans to build the farm.

We recently reported on BalticWind.EU that the first meetings between the Korsnäs wind farm developer and local residents will take place in early December 2021.
