Statkraft to Build 369 Megawatts of Wind Power in Sweden by 2015

Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Statkraft AS, Norway’s biggest power producer, will build two wind farms in Sweden with joint capacity of 369 megawatts and annual output of 1 terawatt-hour.

The Bjoerkhoejden wind farm will have an installed capacity of 270 megawatts and will start production in two stages, in 2014 and 2015, the company said today in an e-mailed statement. The Oegonfaegnaden 99-megawatt plant will be completed as early as 2014, it said.

The projects are joint ventures with Svenska Cellulosa AB.

Sweden will produce 7.1 terawatt-hours of power from wind turbines this year, according to a report submitted to the government last month by Energimyndigheten, the nation’s energy agency. In the 12 months to August, Sweden consumed a total of 139.8 terawatt-hours of electricity, data from the Nord Pool Spot SA exchange show.
