German independent asset manager Prime Capital AG said on Tuesday it has achieved full commercial operations at the 254-MW Stavro wind farm in northern Sweden.
Consisting of two adjacent wind power plants in the areas of Blodrotberget and Blackfjallet, northwest of the Swedish city of Umea, the complex is equipped with a total of 62 Siemens Gamesa turbines. The output of the 4.1-MW machines will be supplied to local data centres and timber processing facilities, Prime Capital said in a Twitter post.
Prime Capital developed the Stavro project and will manage it on behalf of a consortium of Korean institutional investors, German pension fund Nordrheinische Aerzteversorgung and Siemens Financial Services. As previously announced, the wind farm complex will operate under corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Google LLC and Swedish forestry and paper company Holmen AB (STO:HOLM.B).
The construction of the Stavro wind park was initiated in the summer of 2019.
