wpd has secured the grid access for the two wind farms Broboberget and Lannaberget by signing the grid connection agreement for up to 740 MW installed wind power capacity with the grid operator Ellevio.
The two wind farms are to be built in the municipalities of Rättvik and Ovanåker in the central Swedish provinces of Dalarna and Gävleborg. The project comprises around 100 wind turbines in two project parts and will be connected to the transmission grid via a new 400 kV transformer station. The environmental permits allow to construct up to 80 turbines in Broboberget and 35 turbines in Lannaberget. wpd is now continuing the detailed project planning and initiated talks with turbine suppliers. The first phase of the grid connection is scheduled to be commissioned by grid operator Ellevio in year 2027.
