Location of Vormsi islandVormsi is located in Western part of Estonia, between Hiiumaa Island and the mainland. It covers 92 square kilometres and is Estonia’s fourth largest island. The name Vormsi is derived from its German name “Worms” or its Swedish name “Ormsö” (both meaning “snake island”).

Historically Vormsi was inhabited by coastal Swedes. Before World War II more than 2500 people lived on the island. During the Soviet occupation Vormsi was a closed border-zone, where guests could arrive only with government permission and where it was strictly forbidden (even for the local fishermen) to go to sea. Today there are about 400 inhabitants in Vormsi island.To get to Vormsi Island one can take a ferry (trip is 12km and takes 45minutes) from Rohuküla port next to Haapsalu (108 km from Tallinn).


The Smart Vormsi project is driven by necessity to improve subsistence of inhabitants of peripheries and availability and quality of public services in remote places like islands. The central point of the Smart Vormsi project is to use Vormsi island as a test site for different smart solutions, initially focusing to developing smart grid consisting renewable energy micro producers (solar, wind, possibly bio), combined by smart energy management, smart e- and m-services for remote areas.
