September 5 (Renewables Now) - Swedish renewable energy plants developer OX2 on Thursday announced the commissioning and grid-connection of a 21.6-MW wind park in Sweden, in line with the initial project schedule.
The so-called Stigshojden wind farm is currently owned by Swiss asset manager Fontavis, which purchased the pre-construction asset from OX2 late in 2017. The Swedish developer was responsible for building the power plant and will also take care of its management, as previously agreed.
Located in Vasternorrland, 35 km (21.75 miles) southwest of Ornskoldsvik, the wind farm consists of six Vestas V117 turbines, with an individual capacity of 3.6 MW. The machines are expected to generate an average of 62 GWh of electricity annually, which will be enough to meet the demand of about 13,000 homes.
According to the press release, the commissioning of the plant marks the first completion of a greenfield asset in the Fontavis Renewable Infrastructure Fund Europe.
