Renewable energy plants developer OX2 and Swiss asset manager Fontavis today announced the commissioning of the 33-MW Orrberget wind farm in Sweden.
Located in Ludvika municipality, the power plant uses nine Nordex N117 turbines with a capacity of 3.7 MW each, which are expected to generate about 96 GWh of electricity annually. Their output will be enough to meet the power consumption of around 19,200 homes each year and offset 57,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, according to calculations.
OX2 is the developer of the project, while the asset is currently owned by Fontavis. The Swiss asset manager purchased the scheme at end-2017 and then agreed with OX2 to be its asset manager.
This is Fontavis’ third operational onshore wind farm in Sweden. Apart from investing in wind, solar and hydropower projects, the company will also expand into the biomass sector in the coming years, as well, it said.
