Construction on Ånstadblåheia to start in March
2016 was a year of big decisions. For Norwegian wind power, at least, these decisions mean we have a lot to look forward to in 2017 and the years to come. We’re happy that the wind power tree has spurned yet another branch: Nordkraft and Fortum have announced that it is now ready to start building the Ånstadblåheia project.
Ånstadblåheia was sold to Fortum late last year through the acquisition of Ånstadblåheia Vindkraft AS. This happens as the Finnish company gears up to build a large wind power portfolio in the Nordics over the coming years. The building of the 50 MW project will still be conducted by Nordkraft.
Nordkraft recently announced that the construction will commence on March 6th, and the power plant is to stand ready in Autumn of 2018.
- We are glad for all positive news from good projects. Not least are we happy for those who own diggers, bulldozers and trucks in Sortland, says NORWEA special advisor Andreas T. Aasheim.
The project is projected to cost 400-500 mill NOK (45-56 mill EUR), giving an annual production in the region of 150 GWh. For those who want to see the plant arise, Nordkraft has announced that tours of the area will be arranged during the construction period.
