Winda Energy is planning a wind farm in Ukonkangas, Puolanka. The preliminary project area is about 3 100 hectares in size and is located in the southwestern part of Puolanka, about 2 km east of Puokio. About 24-35 wind turbines are tentatively planned for the area. The number and location of turbines will be specified through discussions with landowners and the master planning process. In addition, an environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedure will be carried out for the area.
