Windlife Kola LL1 has secured a plot of land of 20 x 2 kilometers on a prime location 80 km east of Murmansk.
In April 9th 2008 a Protocol was signed with Governor of Murmansk Oblast for a public-private cooperation regarding the development and construction of a 200MW wind farm on this location.
Subsequently the Interdepartmental Commission (29 members) of the Murmansk Oblast government accepted a “Declaration of Principles” for the project. This acts as a Preliminary Building permit.
May 2009, OOO Windlife Kola LL1 gave Ecofys, (Dutch renewable energy consultancy firm), the assignment for a feasibility study to develop a wind farm based on the Riso Wind Atlas for Russia and 10 months of raw wind measurement data of a TV mast in the nearby village of Teriberka.
Later Windlife built a wind measurement mast on the chosen wind farm site and had GeoNet of Germany perform a bankable wind study on site and to validate the existing wind measurement data of Teriberka. Currently we have a two years of certified wind data on site and the measurements are still ongoing.
An official grid study has been done and has been approved by the relevant Authorities. Also an Environmental study according to Russian Law (OVOS) has been executed.
