Eesti Energia contests provisional measure halting sale of Tootsi wind farm plots

BC, Tallinn, 30.11.2017.Print version
Enefit Green, renewable energy subsidiary of the Estonian state owned Eesti Energia group, has contested the grant of provisional legal protection that has halted the sell-off of properties designated for a large wind farm at Tootsi in southwestern Estonia, informs LETA/BNS.

A court has granted provisional legal protection on the basis of a lawsuit contesting the planned auction of the plots by the state forest management company RMK, Enefit Green CEO Aavo Karmas said at a press conference.


"We have contested this ruling [of the court]," the CEO said.


The Tallinn administrative court at the beginning of this month started handling the applications of Eleon AS, Raisner AS and Tootsi Tuulepark OU to declare invalid the decision of the state forest management company RMK to put the Tootsi land plots up for auction. The complaints were joined and preliminary legal protection was granted, which forbid the transfer of the immovables.


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 was to 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.
