    Vattenfall to cut ribbon 353-MW Swedish wind farm

    May 16, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      May 16 (Renewables Now) - Swedish utility Vattenfall AB announced on Monday that it will inaugurate its 353-MW Blakliden Fabodberget wind farm in northern Sweden on May 23 to start the new phase of the project that took four years to build.

      Now ready for operation, Blakliden Fabodberget becomes the largest land-based wind farm in Vattenfall’s portfolio. It is equipped with 84 wind turbines installed in the municipalities of Lycksele and Asele, and is capable of generating some 1.1 TWh of power per year, according to the utility’s estimates.

      Vattenfall is part-owner of the project, holding a 30% stake. The remainder of the ownership is split among Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) and infrastructure investment platform AIP Management.

      Construction of the wind farm started in 2018, but had to stop during winter months due to snow and sub-zero temperatures. Additionally, the project was caught up in the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 which led to some changes in delivery schedules, Vattenfall then said.
