Neoen, which is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange, is one of the most important and dynamic independent producers of exclusively renewable energy in the world.  The company is mainly active in France, Finland, Australia, Mexico, the United States and the United Kingdom.

Among other things, Neoen operates Europe’s most powerful solar park at Cestas near Bordeaux (300 MWp) and France’s largest lithium-ion storage plant. The company has now announced that it will supply green power to Google’s data centre in Finland via Hedet’s wind turbine suit, which has 18 turbines with a capacity of 4.5 MW. In addition, Neoen is currently finalising the development of another wind farm in Finland, Mutkalampi. This has a total capacity of 250 MW and an agreement has already been signed with Google for the purchase of the green power that will be developed here. Also in Finland, Neoen is starting the construction of the largest Scandinavian battery storage facility, Yllikkälä Power Reserve.

Xavier Barbaro, Neoen’s CEO, stated in a press release that he was particularly proud of the commissioning of Hedet’s wind farm. According to him, the start of its commercial operation represents an important milestone for Neoen’s future activity in Finland. In this way, Neoen wants to make a significant contribution to Finland’s target of being completely climate neutral by 2035. Finland, which since December 2019 has been headed by the barely 35-year-old Sanna Marin, the youngest Prime Minister in the world, is, as is well known, one of the great pioneers in reducing CO2 emissions.
