The Estonian Government is giving high priority to its energy sector in its ongoing economic reform program. Government policy and objectives toward its energy sector can be summarized in two ways: to provide a reliable source of energy for the country, and to provide such energy at the lowest possible cost. The chosen means for accomplishing these include improving the efficiency in use of energy and improving the overall reliability of electricity generation and distribution. Aggreko sees a great potential in cooperation with Estonian producers, plants, manufactures and businesses and is ready to offer the local market are cost-effective solutions aimed at enhancing effectiveness, reducing overall energy costs and minimizing maintenance costs, among other advantages.

As of 31.12.2018 there are 139 wind turbines installed in Estonia with a total capacity of 309,96 MW. The last wind farm commissioned was Tooma II wind park with three turbines and total capacity of 7,05MW in the West of Estonia in 2016. You can find a table with all the wind farms here.

Wind energy accounted for 36 percent of total renewable energy production and wind farms produced 590 GWh of electric energy in Estonia during 2018, according to Elering. Due to less wind, the production of wind power decreased last year by 12 percent but remained in a similar level with 2016. Wind energy on which a subsidy was paid totaled 490 GWh, 82 percent of the cap 600 GWh). The installation of on-site solar power production facilities is a rapidly growing trend around the world. We offer complete solutions for hybrid energy solutions, covering the entire range of activities from design and construction to applying for necessary permissions and maintenance services.

Aggreko offers cost-effective power solutions on the base of diesel, gas, hybrid power for wind farms, manufacturing, events, data centers, forestry, agriculture sectors in the country, as well as efficient heating and cooling systems for all buildings and equipment for utilities that prevents blackouts. Our modular solutions are aimed to allow electrical power producers and power intensive industries work to ensure reliable power supplies for clients or business processes.

Once solar or wind plants are installed, generation costs for power are almost zero – as are emissions! But unlike thermal generation, wind and photovoltaic (PV) are variable power sources. Therefore, the growth of renewables may lead to increased grid instability and operational uncertainty, especially on isolated networks.

Aggreko equipment is not for sale, and, therefore, there is no need to secure funding for long-term investments through loans or withdrawal of funds from your turnover. Amounts paid for equipment rental or kilowatt-hours are deductible costs because they are operational, non-taxable expenses.

Aggreko design and produce diesel, gasand hybrid projects. Our equipment has also proven its reliability during emergencies such as blackout at Fucusima. While many companies offer generators as an extra service, Aggreko regards renting as a business model. This means our equipment relocates to, and operates in, various climatic conditions, and its design focuses on mobility, modularity, and is simple to connect.

To help ensure a smooth running wind farm, we offer environmental control packages for blade remediation. We tailor these packages to meet customer’s specific regional and seasonal requirements for managing temperature and dehumidification during blade repair. We also provide power, heating and cooling solutions during planned utility outages and tower maintenance.

We’re building a robust pipeline of hybrid projects as we work with customers to reduce power costs and environmental footprint, while ensuring energy security and stability of supply to meet long-term commercial objectives.

Power, cooling, heating, battery storage, when you need it, where you need it. We’re on call 24/7, 365 days a year to quickly assist - even if your site is tucked away in the remotest location.
