Google Buys Wind Power for Finnish Data Center

GoogleThe global insurance company Allianz has signed agreements to acquire an additional 33 MW from Maevaara wind farm in Northern Sweden from the Nordic renewable energy developer, OX2. At the same time, Google has signed a power purchase agreement to buy the entire electricity output of the wind farm for the next ten years, to power its data center at Hamina, Finland.

This is the second such agreement signed by the three companies – in 2013, Google agreed to purchase the entire output of 24 wind turbines at Maevaara for ten years, starting in 2015. The new agreement is for an additional 10 wind turbines when they become operational in 2016.

OX2 will manage the 105 MW wind farm commercially and technically.
