Italian energy company ERG SpA (BIT:ERG) said on Friday that it had wrapped up construction of the 62-MW Furuby wind power project in southern Sweden.
The wind farm is up and running, ready to produce around 210 GWh per year. Furuby is made up of ten units of the Siemens Gamesa 6.2-MW wind turbines.
ERG acquired the project at ready-to-build stage from German renewables developer BayWa r.e. last year. The Italian company was to invest a total of EUR 99 million (USD 103.1m) in the transaction, a sum that included costs to acquire building permits and construction, according to a statement at the time.
“The start-up of the Furuby wind farm, earlier than announced in the Business Plan represents a further progress in our growth and geographical diversification process, through a state-of-the-art plant in Sweden, one of the most virtuous countries in the path to decarbonisation,” commented ERG CEO Paolo Merli.
