Fortum has made a final investment decision on the Sørfjord windfarm in Northern Norway. Sørfjord is part of the wind portfolio that Fortum acquired from Nordkraft earlier this year.
The Sørfjord wind park will have 23 wind turbines with a total capacity of 96.6MW. The wind turbines for Sørfjord will be delivered by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. Each wind turbine will have a nominal effect of 4.2MW and a rotor diameter of 130 meters. Initial civil works on the Sørfjord site have been ongoing since spring 2017. The foundations and the electrical works will be executed during 2018 and 2019 and the wind farm is expected to be commissioned in late 2019.
