200MW Jädraås at full power
Arise Windpower wraps up commissioning on onshore facility in Sweden
Arise Windpower and London-based Platina Partners LLP have fully commissioned the 200MW Jädraås wind farm near Gävle, Sweden.
The 70MW second phase of the project is now exporting power and the facility, which features a total 66 Vestas V112 3MW turbines, is the largest operational onshore scheme in Scandinavia.
Arise Windpower owns 50% of the €336m project and private equity outfit Platina the other 50%. Construction kicked off in November 2011.
Platina managing partner Emma Collins said: “The fact we have completed the construction of Jädraås on time and on budget is testament to the skills of our project team and those of our partners Arise.
“Jädraås has also created a model which allows pension funds to invest in this asset class with confidence and we have now seen other pension funds enter the market using similar structures.”
