The Spanish wind power manufacturer Gamesa has been entrusted with supplying the turbines to what will become Vattenfall's largest onshore wind farm in Sweden.
"This project is completely in line with our strategy to invest in wind power only where there are good wind conditions and where it is profitable. We have found such a site in the Höge Väg project and it's really pleasing to present a solid investment in renewable energy in southern Sweden," concludes Alberto Mendez Rebollo, Head of Vattenfall Vindkraft AB.
This is the first time that Gamesa has supplied turbines to a wind farm owned by Vattenfall.
"This contract with Vattenfall, one of the world's leading energy suppliers, is a sign of confidence in Gamesa's technical solutions. The contract also marks a milestone in our product and sales strategy for northern Europe, and especially in Sweden, one of our prioritised markets," says Ricardo Chocarro, CEO of Gamesa's European operations.
The Höge Väg project was acquired by Vattenfall in 2013 and is being built on the Maltesholm estate. Construction will begin in the autumn, and the first turbines will be supplied in summer 2015. Commissioning is planned for late 2015.
