After the announcement of having signed a long-term PPA contract with a Swedish industrial company for the Aldermyrberget wind farm in May this year, the financial close marks the next milestone in the realisation of the project implemented by wpd europe. KfW IPEX-Bank acted as a partner for the project financing.
The 72MW wind farm, which is being built in the municipality of Skellefteå in northern Sweden, consists of 17 Vestas V150 wind turbines with a rated output of 4.2MW each, a hub height of 155 metres and a total height of 230 metres. The frosty climate in northern Sweden makes the installation of wind turbines with anti-icing systems a requirement.
Construction of the infrastructure for the project was started in June 2019. The turbine installation is to be completed in summer 2020 and commissioning is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.
