Nordic JV plans 900MW in Norway
St1 Norge links with Vindkraft Nord and Ny Energi on two wind farms
St1 Norge and a consortium of Vindkraft Nord and Ny Energi have set up a joint venture to develop two wind farms in northern Norway totalling 900MW.
The Grenselandet JV will first focus on development work and the environmental impact assessments for the 700MW Davvi project and 200MW Borealis wind farm, which will be located in the Lebesby and Tana municipalities.
The JV said this work will take about three years, after which “decisions about the next steps will be made”.
Grenselandet is a 50% partner in the Borealis project with Finnmark Kraft.
It said the location of the projects means they could potentially connect to both the Norwegian and Finnish grids.
St1 Norge is the Norwegian subsidiary of Finnish energy company St1 Nordic.
Grenselandet project manager Harald Dirdal said: “This project, along with the proposed grid concept, will enable development of energy-intensive industries.”
