Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm very proud of our wind turbines. In fact, as you drive along one of the main roads of the small coastal city of Mariehamn, which runs in parallel with the shore, you can see four of them in the distance on the other side of the bay. It's a landmark of sorts.

What turbines are they (manufacturer and scale), and who provides maintenance?

They all seem to be listed here (homepage of Ålands Vindenergi, the company mentioned in the diary), the four in particular I mentioned in my comment above ("Fortuna", "Fredrika" etc) are Vestas 600Kw with a wing span of 44m and a hub height between 45m - 50m.

As for maintenance, I'm assuming Ålands Vindenergi handles its nine (soon to be 13), but I couldn't say if they have enough knowledge "in-house" or hire outside expertise.
