TuuliWatti Oy is constructing one of Finland’s largest wind farms in the Simo Sarvisuo region of southwestern Lapland. Twenty-seven wind turbines with nominal power of 5.6 megawatt will be built in the area using the industry's latest and most efficient technologies. When completed, the 151megawatt wind farm will have an annual production of more than 0.5 terawatt hours - equivalent to over 8 percent of all wind power generated last year in Finland.
Carelin has already been involved in the Simo Sarvisuo project's feasibility study and bidding phases of BoP-contractors and will provide the builder’s project management services for Tuuliwatti during the construction phase. In context of the project's preparatory work, Carelin compared implementation models between various contract models and technical implementation approaches. The main focus was on civil engineering, substation, internal grid construction and commenting on the turbine supplier's specifications and communicating with the turbine supplier in these areas. The purpose of comparing implementation model is to help Tuuliwatti to find a new cost-effective project implementation model.
After generating the project implementation plan, preliminary design and assessing the cost level of the project, Carelin has been responsible for the contractor negotiations and the project kick off. Carelin's role during construction phase is to help the builder to ensure the project is safely executed and meets the technical requirements within the defined schedule. There is close cooperation with the builder, turbine supplier, BoP contractors, landowners, authorities and other stakeholders.
“For the Tuuliwatti Sarvisuo project, we have built a team of experts from different areas of expertise, led by a project manager. This ensures the successful completion of the project for the builder, beginning with tree-removal and up to supervision of the turbine delivery and financial closing of the project.”
