Hundratals vindkraftverk reser sig högt över trädtopparna i Markbygden utanför Piteå. Om några år står området för 6 procent av Sveriges elproduktion.

”Från att ha stått ensam i skogen till att se det här. Visst känns det häftigt”, säger Mikael Kyrk som har jobbat med jätteprojektet i 17 år.

PRESS RELEASE


Luxcara invests in one of Europe’s largest onshore wind projects
 
Hamburg / Umeå / Piteå, April 29, 2019.
 

  • The Önusberget wind farm, part of the Markbygden 1101 cluster, has been sold by the developer Svevind to the asset manager Luxcara
  • Luxcara expects to begin construction activities in 2019 and achieve commercial operation of the project by the end of 2021
  • The project has an expected total capacity of 750 MW, making it one of the largest single-site onshore wind projects to be realized in Europe

 
Luxcara, a leading asset manager in renewable energy, increases its Scandinavian portfolio with the acquisition of one of Europe’s largest single onshore wind projects with an expected total capacity of 750 MW. The project is part of Markbygden 1101 in Northern Sweden, a cluster that was declared by the Swedish government as exceptional in scale.
 
Project Önusberget has been developed by Svevind. The German-Swedish company develops, sells and operates onshore wind power projects and will continue to support the realization of the project until connection to the grid in 2021.

“We are thrilled to invest in one of Europe’s most attractive locations for wind power and contribute to Sweden’s ambitious goal to become carbon neutral by 2045. The project combines great natural resources with our expertise to structure long-term power purchase agreements in the world’s largest power market”, commented Alexandra von Bernstorff, Managing Partner of Luxcara.
 
Wolfgang Kropp, CEO of Svevind, said: “Having worked on the development of the Markbygden 1101 cluster since 2002, Svevind is very excited about this partnership with Luxcara. We are pleased to see the success of our hard work, once more demonstrated by the attention the Önusberget wind farm has attracted from world-class asset managers such as Luxcara. We look forward to seeing this project and future projects within Markbygden 1101 constructed and contributing to the much-needed fight against climate change. Svevind is very thankful for our local partners in Northern Sweden, who have contributed substantially to the success of this landmark project.

Project Önusberget will be situated in Sweden’s Norbotten county, 30 km west of Piteå, with excellent existing infrastructure and strong wind resources. It was acquired for a portfolio for institutional investors and will receive revenues under a power purchase agreement.
 
CMS Hasche Sigle Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten und Steuerberatern mbB and Advokatfirma DLA Piper Sweden KB acted as legal advisors to Luxcara.


Cirio Advokatbyrå AB and Hogan Lovells LLP acted as legal advisors to Svevind. 4initia GmbH and Fieldstone acted jointly as financial adviser to Svevind.

Annonskarta-01.png

Avgränsningssamråd för elanslutning av Markbygden Etapp 3B till Dubblabergen

Inom Markbygden Etapp 3 finns sedan 2018 tillstånd enligt miljöbalken att bygga och driva upp till 442 vindkraftverk. De västra delarna av Etapp 3 (Etapp 3B) planeras anslutas via en 150 kV elledning till en transformatorstation vid Dubblabergen.

Svevind AB förbereder nu en koncessionsansökan enligt ellagen för denna ledning. På kartan nedan kan du se vilka ledningsstråk som kan bli aktuella. Ledningen omfattar upp till 45 km kraftledningsgata. Från Dubblabergen finns sedan en beviljad elledning som ansluter till Trolltjärns transformatorstation och därmed till stamnätet.

REALIZATION OF MARKBYGDEN ETT - THE LARGEST SINGLE ONSHORE WIND FARM IN EUROPE
PUBLISHED 07/11/2017
Markbygden ETT

Svevind is pleased to announce that the 650 MW Markbygden ETT wind farm in Northern Sweden, comprising 179 wind turbines, has reached financial close. The project has been acquired by GE Energy Financial Services and Green Investment Group Limited, part of Macquarie Group. As new equity partners, GE and Green Investment Group have raised approximately €800M in financing.

The construction of Markbygden ETT’s infrastructure has already begun, with preparation of about 130km of wind farm roads, crane platforms, wind farm internal cabling and second level substations. GE Renewable Energy will supply 179 of its 3.6 MW wind turbines with 137 meter rotors. The wind farm is expected to begin commissioning in the second half of 2018 and be fully operational by the end of 2019. At that time, Markbygden ETT is expected to be the largest single onshore wind farm in Europe.

Svevind has developed the Markbygden ETT project over the last 15 years. In total, Svevind’s development work in the Markbygden 1101-area may lead to 1,101 wind turbines becoming operational, in what would be the largest collection of wind farms in Europe.

Svevind values the excellent cooperation over time with landowners, authorities, organizations, associations, locals and individuals. This has been a prerequisite for the development and realization of the project. The Markbygden ETT project will be realized on properties owned by Sveaskog Förvaltnings AB, SCA Skogsfastigheter AB and several private property owners.

In addition to wind power, Svevind established other related business activities in the area of Markbygden, such as gravel production for the construction of wind farm roads as well as establishment of local concrete batching plants for the wind turbine foundations. The nearby localization of these businesses minimizes transports and environmental impact. At the moment, the electrical grid connection to the 130 kV grid of Markbygden Net AB and to the 400 kV grid of the Swedish TSO Svenska Kraftnät is under construction.
