Sweden consumes about 150 terawatt-hours of electricity per year,[1 ] with domestic wind power generating around 17.5 TW·h[2 ] (12.4 percent), up from 2.4% in 2010 and 0.3% in 2000. Sweden consumes around 150 TW·h of energy per annum[3 ]. In its official forecast as at the latest in February 2019, the Swedish Wind Energy Association (SWEA) plans to increase the cumulative wind power in the country to 12.8 GW by the end of2022 – 91 percent higher than that of 2017 at 6.7 GW[5 ]. This is a list of Sweden’s (in the maritime national borders) operating offshore wind farms.
In a project of approximately 400 wind turbines at 7 wind farms in Jämtland and Västernorrland, Swedish package and paper production firm Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolager and Norwegian power company Statkraft are planning to invest 16 billion kronor (€ 1.73 billion; US$ 2.4 billion). Statkraft is providing funding and SCA is providing the country.
In spring the Swedish operator, the 155 MW Aby-Alebo wind farm in the south of Sweden will start working.
The 36 Vestas V150 turbines, total height approximately 200 meters, will support the € 161 million Skr1.7 billion project.
In the first quarter of 2022, Aby-Alebo is expected to produce approximately 500 gigawatt-hours of electricity per year once operational. The project is expected to create around 350 workers and hire local work if possible.
Kanonaden constructs access roads and builds foundations and the infrastructure of the city, and Eon connects to the grid.
Stena also told me that the project involves nineteen local landowners.
“It will be windy in the area and the wind farm will produce large quantities of renewable power,” said Peter Zachrisson, Chief Electoral Officer for Renewable Engines.
“This ensures that for many years to come we will create significant climate benefits.
EOLBREAK” Previously, in several wind power projects, we had been working with these three manufacturers with very good results.
“We are very happy that we and the landowners have carried out this collaboration with you.”
