As a pilot project ahead of the major wind farm project in Markbygden, the company Markbygden Vind AB applied for and was granted permission for a wind farm of eight turbines at Stor-Blåliden, north of the village of Långträsk in the municipality of Piteå. Permission was granted in 2010, and the construction of roads, power lines, and two wind turbines followed. Technology is developing rapidly and there are now much larger and more efficient turbines available. Consequently, the company Storblåliden Vind AB has applied for permission for turbines up to 250 metres tall. The Environmental Review Delegation of Norrbotten County granted permission in April 2019. The decision gained legal force in June 2020.
Transferred: This project has been transferred to a third party.
All figures and values (above) relating to the number of turbines, output rated power, and estimated production are preliminary and may change during the project’s completion.
