Altren in collaboration with ULNANOTECH nanocenter attracted Fortum as an investor for construction of the first commercial wind farm in Russia. In the course of this pilot project Fortum had a chance perform «field tests» of the mechanisms for logistics and construction of wind farms on the new Russian market showing the way to other wind industry leaders.

Fortum’s investments amount to approximately EUR 65 M. The first wholesale wind farm in Russia has been included in competitive selection of investment projects for construction of renuable energy generation facilities. The wind park is to enter commercial operation in Q1 2018.

The investment development Fund Fortum-RUSNANO intends the construction of 1,000MW of wind power in Russia in 2018-2022.

Altren has also conducted wind monitoring in the region and launched a project for localization of wind turbine component production.
