The turnaround followed a net loss of SEK 138 million, and EBIT loss of SEK 158 million in the first quarter. The second-quarter results, released today, also showed improvement compared to year-ago earnings.

In the April-June period, Eolus Vind did not commission and hand over to customers any wind turbines. At the end of June, the company had 786 MW of wind farms under construction.
A major event during the reporting period was the closing of the sale of interest in the 260-MW Stor-Skalsjon wind project in Sweden to MEAG. In that transaction, Eolus Vind and Hydro REIN sold of a combined 75% stake, and agreed to jointly handle the installation.
