Empower will participate to Vind 2015, the Nordic region’s largest annual rendezvous for the wind power industry, to be held on 4–5 November. The theme of the event this year is “A renewable Europe?” It offers all of us in the wind power industry an opportunity to influence the development and the debate around finances, the market, the electricity network and regulation issues. The programme includes many interesting speakers and ample opportunities to mingle.

Empower is the leading supplier of wind power services in Finland, and we are now looking forward to introducing our services in Sweden. Our service portfolio ranges from building wind power plants, development and construction to maintenance, as well as 24/7 operating and monitoring services.

“In Finland, we have over time put together an effective package of services for the wind power sector, and we are continuously developing those services. As the market leader in Finland, we are also looking to expand our operations to other Nordic markets, and the Swedish market is currently in our focus”, says Juha Silvola, Vice President, Wind Power Business at Empower.

Currently, Empower has the main responsibility for several wind power projects in Finland. One of them is the Posio Saukkovaara windfarm in Finnish Lapland, where Empower is in charge of balance of plant delivery and project management. This includes building roads, platforms, foundation plinths, the medium-voltage network in the windfarm, the telecommunications network, and a 110/20 kV substation. Approving the turbine delivery is also handled by Empower.

At Vind 2015, we present our range of services for wind power and information management.
