Norway to build Europe’s largest onshore wind power project

by • February 25, 2016 • No Comments

The newly-announced Fosen Vind project can comprise six wind farms with a combined ability of 1,000 MW, additional than the current total installed ability in Norway and on track to become the biggest of its type in Europe.

The Fosen Vind project’s combined ability can in addition manufacture it the fourth biggest in the world. The Gansu Wind Farm in China, already under construction, is listed as the biggest with an eventual expected ability of 6,000 MW.

Fosen Vind is a joint venture between Statkraft, TrønderEnergi and Nordic Wind Power. Its €1.1 billion (US$1.2 billion) portfolio can include the Harbaksfjellet, Roan, Storheia, Kvenndalsfjellet, Geitfjellet and Hitra 2 wind farms.

The wind farms are to be located on the Fosen peninsula, the island of Hitra and in Snillfjord, which between them are said to contribute a few of the most conditions for generating wind-power in Europe. It is expected which the project can generate 3.4 TWh of electricity annually.

Construction of the wind farms is due to start in the 2nd quarter of this year and is slated for completion in 2020.
