The Aapua wind park (Swedish: Aapua-parken) is a wind park on Eta, southwest of Aapua, Övertorneå municipality in Norrbotten County, Sweden. As of 2007, it is the northern-most wind park in Sweden.[1] The park is owned by Aapua Vind AB, representing 14 private investors, and operates on land owned by the state-owned Sveaskog, Sweden's largest forest owner.[2] The plant came online in 2005[3]


The park consists of seven 1.5 MW Vestas V82-1.5 MW Arctic wind turbines[4] with a total stated power of 9.9 MW[2] (10.5 MW according to supplier Vestas[4]). Each unit has a nacelle height of 78 m and a rotor diameter of 82 m.[4]
