Germany-based Wpd has announced that the foundation work at the 72MW Aldermyrberget wind farm in Sweden is nearing completion.
Located on land owned by Sveaskog, Holmen and a private landowner, the wind farm is being built in a traditional mining and industrial community in the province of Västerbottens Iän.
Turbines installation by Vestas is scheduled to commence at the Aldermyrberget wind farm shortly.
Wpd said it has completed foundation construction and access roads for the project.
The wind farm will comprise 17 units of Vestas V150 4.2MW machines, each featuring hub height of 155m and total height of 230m.
Additional features of the turbines include blade heating systems to comply with the special climatic conditions in northern Sweden, WPD said.
Scheduled to be commissioned by the end of 2020, the wind farm will produce about 270 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of power annually. It will supply clean electricity required to power approximately 54,000 households.
WPD Scandinavia managing director Maria Röske said: “We are pleased to be able to welcome Vestas to the site soon, and that we have reached another milestone in our commitment to Sweden.
“The great commitment with which our teams on site have recently advanced the anchoring of the plant foundations in the hard rock is symbolic of the basic commitment with which we were able to master all challenges in the planning and realisation of the Aldermyrberget project, which is important locally but also for the positioning of wpd in the Swedish market.”
The power generated by the firm will be sold to large unnamed Swedish industrial company under a power purchase agreement signed in May 2019.
