RES sells two wind projects in Härjedalen to Spanish Power
Feb 25, 2019

RES, known locally in Scandinavia as Nordisk Vindkraft, has sold the Ängersjökölen and Sandtjärnberget wind projects in the County of Härjedalen, Sweden, to Spanish Power. The two projects consist of 16 turbines in total and has an installed capacity of 51MW, enough to power approximately 30 000 homes*.

The two projects have been developed by RES and the environmental permit for the project came into force in 2014, with an additional update in 2016. Spanish Power has now acquired the assets and will take the projects further towards construction. RES has a large portfolio of wind farm projects under development in Sweden and Norway and foresees exponential growth for wind power in Scandinavia.

Matilda Afzelius, CEO of RES in Scandinavia said “We are proud to hand over these two well-developed projects to Spanish Power. We wish them the best of luck with the continued development and upcoming construction".

Ricardo Fuster, CEO of Spanish Power “we are very excited about these projects increasing our presence in Scandinavia and perfectly fitting our growth strategy. It is also a great pleasure to materialize our long relationship with NV and look forward a prosperous cooperation”
 

*Calculated on an annual consumption of electricity of 5000 kWh.
