First power is currently being produced from the 37MW Kingebol wind farm that European Energy has finished building in the Swedish municipality of Åmål.
The six turbines are expected to produce 108GWh annually, which is equal to the yearly electricity usage of 20,000 residential homes.
The turbines are 200 metres tall and are Siemens Gamesa’s type SG6,2-170 HH 115.
Jens-Peter Zink, European Energy deputy chief executive, said “In a period of electricity shortages and high electricity prices, it feels extremely satisfying to be able to contribute with a substantial addition of new, green energy.
“It pressures down prices and accelerates the green transition.”
According to the developer, the project has proceeded without interruptions or delays.
In addition, a 37MWp solar park will be built next to the wind park, according to European Energy’s plans.
The solar park, which will be the first of its kind in Sweden, can be finished within 12 to 16 months if the county administrative board approves the project.
