Aegir Insights, a software and intelligent technology provider for offshore wind investment, has welcomed Finnish land and water manager Metsähallitus as a client.
“The Finnish government has set the goal of establishing Finland as a fossil-free society by 2035. As the administrator of state-owned land and water areas, Metsähallitus has an important role to play in achieving these climate targets,” says Aegir Insights CEO Scott Urquhart.
Metsähallitus, a state enterprise overseeing one-third of Finland’s land and water areas, has 1,200 employees who are responsible for the sustainable use, management and protection of these land and water areas.
Metsähallitus recently launched an international competitive tendering process for offshore wind power projects off Närpiö and Raahe and Pyhäjoki. According to Metsähallitus, the planned total capacity of the two new offshore wind farms is approximately 3,000 MW.
”We are extremely pleased to enter a cooperation agreement with Aegir Insights and look forward to tapping into their deep offshore wind industry insights and experience, as well as benefiting from their advanced tool chain and software products to support Metsähallitus’ remit in offshore wind market development in Finland,” says Markku Tuominen, Metsähallitus’ wind power manager
