Location & Conditions

The Kola northern sea-shore is one of the best on-shore wind sites in Europe with measured average wind speed of 8,9 m/s. Due to the Atlantic Gulf stream the area has relatively mild climate conditions with average summer temperatures of +15ºC and average winter temperatures of – 15ºC and has on average only 1 day per year icing conditions. Another advantage is that wind capacity is strongest during the winter and ideally complementary to the generation of hydro power during the summer in the Murmansk region.
