Navigating the intricacies of wind energy projects demands attention to detail. The realms of technical, regulatory, and economic aspects of these projects can often intertwine in complex patterns. At DGE Finland, we are adept at decoding these patterns and have received excellent feedback from our clients and partners in wind energy.
In Finland, it’s not uncommon to encounter projects with outdated or insufficient EIAs, as the permitting process has tended to be quite long in the past. Even if updated nature surveys or other updates in the EIAs aren’t mandated by the authorities, neglecting certain key areas can create significant risks of delay and cause financial losses to the project. We underscore the importance of comprehensive and up-to-date environmental assessments, ensuring your wind energy project isn’t only feasible, but also sustainable and risk averse.
