RES adds 144MW in Sweden
Swedish subsidiary to manage Sidensjö wind farm for Stadtwerke München
RES subsidiary Nordisk Vindkraft and Stadtwerke München have inaugurated the 144MW Sidensjö wind farm, which is located approximately 15 km west of Örnsköldsvik in Sweden.
The 48-turbine wind farm is so far the biggest project built by Nordisk Vindkraft in the country.
During construction up to 200 people have been working on the site simultaneously. To ensure health and safety during construction more than 1 300 individuals were trained in safety procedures.
Nordisk Vindkraft developed and constructed the wind farm and will continue to manage the operations and handle local contacts for the owner of Germany.
Sidensjö is Stadtwerke München first investment in Sweden.
Nordisk Vindkraft chief executive officer Arne Lorenzen said: “The Sidensjö wind farm is a significant milestone for our company.
“We are now looking forward to continue the cooperation with our client Stadtwerke München during the operational phase of the wind farm together with the local stakeholders in and around the Sidensjö area.”
Stadtwerke München head of corporate investment management Christian Vogt said: “Thanks to the good and professional collaboration with Nordisk Vindkraft, our renewable energies expansion campaign has taken a further big step forward.
“And SWM's expansion of renewable energies continues: along with the three offshore wind parks DanTysk and Global Tech I in the North Sea, and Gwynt y Môr in the Irish Sea, the Sidensjö onshore wind park is our fourth major project that is being commissioned this year.
“And our next large-scale regenerative project is already being created with the start of construction works on the Sandbank offshore wind park.”
