May 15 (Renewables Now) - Swedish renewables developer OX2 said today it has initiated the construction of the 56-MW Kjolberget wind farm in Norway, a project developed in partnership with Austri Vind.
OX2 is building the plant at Kjolberget in Valer municipality, Norway’s Hedmark county. The scheme calls for erecting 13 units of Vestas’ V150 4.3-MW turbines, which will be able to generate a total of 195 GWh per year.
The wind park is expected to become operational in the first quarter of 2021. It represents OX2’s second construction project in Norway as in December 2018 the Swedish firm commissioned the 112-MW Austri Raskiftet wind farm.
When they launched their partnership in 2015, Austri and OX2 announced plans to build a total of 250 MW of wind parks in Norway.
