The Estonian wind technology company AS Eleon intends to take part in the auction of the land earmarked for a large wind farm at Tootsi in southwestern Estonia, Eleon board member Andres Sonajalg has said.

“Of course we do, we will analyze the situation and see. We are interested in developing wind technology, the home market is very important for us,” Sonajalg told BNS.

Oleg Sonajalg, another board member of Eleon, has previously said that the market price of the land covered by a detailed plan for a wind farm of 38 turbines should be 18.7 million euros.

The supervisory board of the state forest management company RMK, the government designated owner of the Tootsi properties, has decided to put the land up for sale with a starting price of 12.3 million euros. The public auction will take place at RMK offices at Toompuiestee 24, Tallinn at 2 p.m. on Nov. 8.

The Tootsi wind farm property is situated on 160 hectares in the territory of the Vandra rural municipality in Parnu County. It consists of 40 cadastral units 38 of which have been designated for wind turbines and two for wind measuring towers.

RMK is selling the properties on the basis of a decision of the government from April 27 to hold a public auction for the Tootsi property.

The government in April declared invalid a decision to allocate the Tootsi land properties to the state owned energy company Eesti Energia for establishing a wind farm and decided to hold an auction for the land.

Previously, the government on Dec. 8, 2016 endorsed a decision to increase the share capital of Eesti Energia and hand over to the company the Tootsi plot then valued at 4.1 million euros as a noncash consideration.

Established in 2007, the Estonian company Eleon AS is a developer of multi-megawatt class wind turbines. The first 3M116 wind turbine using Eleon technology was built on Saaremaa Island in 2013. In 2016, the 3-megawatt turbine of Eleon generated 11.2 gigawatt hours of electric energy.
