Tellenes opened!

Wednesday September 20th 2017 will forever be a historic day for Norwegian wind power!

Tellenes wind farm, at 160 MW, is now officially the largest wind farm in Norway. With an estimated annual power production of 550 GWh, the project yields close to as much power as the Alta power station in Finnmark.

The project, developed by Zephyr and Norsk Vind Energi, is fully owned by BlackRock. The project consist of 50 Siemens turbines, and was constructet within an impressive time frame of 14 months.

- What a day! Øyvind Isachsen, CEO of Norwea said during the official opening.

The opening of Tellenes marks a historic day for Norwegian wind power. Within 14 months, the team behind Tellenes have built a power plant the size of the Alta power station, which in it self is an impressive feat. Moreover, with BlackRock as owners, and Google as the PPA off taker, we have now firmly established wind power as an industry for the future in Norway, Isachsen continues.

BlackRock, which provided the project's equity financing the world's largest asset manager.

Google will buy the entire electricity output of a new wind farm, located south of Stavanger, Norway, for a period of 12 years. The PPA is Google’s first in Norway.

Norwea congratulates everyone involved!
