Lundin Petroleum has signed a purchase agreement with Nordic renewables developer OX2 for the 132MW Metsälamminkangas wind farm in northern Finland that is being constructed without government subsidies.

Lundin will use the output from 24 of GE Renewable Energy’s Cypress 5.5MW wind turbines to power its offshore oil and gas production in nearby Norway.

“Alongside our existing hydroelectricity project in Norway, the Metsälamminkangas wind farm will enable us to replace a big share of our net electricity usage, powering our offshore Norway oil and gas production facilities,” said Alex Schneiter, president and chief executive officer at Lundin Petroleum.
