Wind turbine park in the U.S.

A wind turbine park with 30 large turbines and 100 megawatt output is planned to be built in Estonia and could become the largest wind turbine park in the Baltic states.

The turbines have been especially designed for Estonia, use technology created in Estonia, and will be partially built in Estonia, Saarte Hääl and ERR report.

Each turbine will be 130 metres high with total blade diameters reaching 120 metres.

The first turbines should be up and running in 2016 and the project will cost 165 million euros.

Statistically, the share of renewable energy in total electricity production in Estonia hit 17.3 percent in the first quarter, very close to the 17.6-percent national goal for 2020.
