Eltel’s power business in Finland has secured an approximately 13 million-euro contract to build the infrastructure for two new wind farms in Western Finland. The agreement, which was signed with project investor Octopus and energy developer VALOREM, covers the construction of roads, crane pads, turbine foundations, electrical cabling and substations. The Saunamaa and Suolakangas wind farms will have a total capacity of 71.4 megawatts and comprise 17 turbines. The project is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Savosolar has handed over the world’s first solar thermal plant with flat-plate collectors on tracker to NewHeat. The 3.3-megawatt solar thermal plant in Condat-sur-Vézère, France, was started up in January 2019 and has completed a successful operational test period. It is the largest solar thermal plant for industrial process in Europe, with an annual capacity of 4 000 megawatt hours of heat. It comprises 66 tilting structures, each carrying four 16-square-metre collectors that follow the sun from morning to evening.
Nexstim has entered the Swedish depression therapy market with its business partner PO Medica, having sold two of its navigated brain therapy (NBT) systems to two Swedish hospitals. The hospitals will be the first in Sweden to have NBT systems, which will be used for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) in patients that haven’t responded to antidepressants.
