Norwegian construction company Veidekke (OSL:VEI) on Tuesday said it has secured a contract from RES Renewable Norden to build the turbine foundations and roads for a 86-MW wind park in Sweden.
The turnkey contract is worth about SEK 115 million (USD 12m/EUR 11m) and also involves construction of other infrastructure, such as the wind park's internal electric network.
Once completed, the 13-turbine wind farm will generate enough power to supply 40,000 Swedish households, while avoiding 230,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually.
Veidekke expects to complete its job on the project in November 2021.
