Government-owned Swedish power company Vattenfall has
started building one of the country’s largest onshore wind farms. The
Blakliden/Fäbodberget wind farm, estimated to be valued at SEK3.5 billion, will consist of 84 Vestas turbines with a total capacity of 353 MW. It
is expected to generate enough energy to power 220,000 Swedish homes.
60% of the electricity generated will be sold to Norsk Hydro, under a 20-year
power purchase agreement. The project is set to be operational by 2021/22. [emp]
