Source: 5/25/2020, Location: Europe

Veidekke has been commissioned by Stena Renewable to build the foundations and associated roads for 47 wind turbines in Tvinnesheda–Badeboda outside Aseda in Smaland, Sweden. The collaborative design and build contract has a value of approx. SEK 265 million, and the project is scheduled to be completed in December 2021.

“Veidekke has the required expertise and organisation to build as large a wind farm as Vindpark Tvinnesheda. In recent years, Veidekke has built two wind farms for us, and we are pleased to be able to realise yet another wind farm with them,” says Peter Zachrisson, CEO of Stena Renewable.

The contract comprises the construction of roads leading to every wind turbine as well as the associated areas for cranes, storage of turbine wings, etc. Veidekke will also complete the internal power grid, as well as do ground work and cast foundations for the wind turbines.

“We appreciate being given the confidence of constructing this exciting project. Being able to contribute to improving our environment by developing Swedish wind power is important to us. Applying an interactive and involved way of working, we plan to utilise everyone's knowledge to come up with the best solutions for the project,” says Anders Johansson, construction manager at Veidekke Civil Engineering in Sweden.

Stena Renewable is investing SEK 2.2 billion in Vindpark Tvinnesheda, which will provide the Uppvidinge Municipality with a total output of 210 MW. The project has been realised through cooperation between wind power operators and the grid owner E.ON, as well as a grid reinforcement loan from Svenska kraftnät, the Swedish power transmission authority. All in all, 700 MW of new power generation can be connected to the grid in this area, which currently has insufficient power supply.
