Statkraft has decided to build the Bjorkhojden and Ogonf?gnaden wind farms in Sweden. The work will start immediately, which means that Statkraft will have four major wind farms under development in cooperation with SCA in mid/northern Sweden. Statkraft's investment budget for the two most recent projects is about NOK 5.2 billion. In total, the Bjorkhojden and Ogonfagnaden wind farms are expected to produce on average 1090 GWh annually.

"These projects in partnership with SCA will strengthen Statkraft in its work to establish a solid platform for profitable and cost-efficient wind power production in Norway and Sweden. Wind power is environmentally sound and a significant contribution to the transition to a future low-carbon society," says Statkraft President and CEO Christian Rynning-Tonnesen.

Two new wind farms, four under simultaneous construction
The two new wind farms will be built in J?mtland and V?sternorrland counties, northeast of Ostersund in mid/northern Sweden. Bj?rkh?jden wind farm will have an installed capacity of 270 MW and will start operations in two stages, in 2014 and 2015. Ogonf?gnaden wind farm with its 99 MW will be completed as early as 2014. A total of 123 wind turbines will be erected, each with an output of 3 MW. The construction work will start immediately. The wind farms are being built by a joint venture company owned 60-40 by Statkraft and Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget SCA. The partners already have two wind farms under construction in the same area. Stam?sen wind farm (60 MW) will be completed later this autumn, while M?rttj?rnberget wind farm (85 MW) will start operating in 2013. The total investment for these four wind farms is about NOK 7.5 billion.
