Hydro and partners to construct wind farms with 1 TWh annual capacity

Hydro, Eviny, and Zephyr, all based in Norway, have joined forces to develop an onshore wind project between the cities of Høyanger and Sunnfjord. The proposed facility will require between $302 million and $403 million to build, and it will produce 1 TWh of power in total annually. Hydro has experience in generating renewable energy, while Eviny, which is owned by Statkraft, is the largest power producer in Western Norway, and Zephyr has broad experience in onshore wind development The onshore wind farm will be owned and operated by Hydro and Eviny for a long term. 

Once finished, the wind farm’s renewable energy output will be used by the existing industry to support new industrial growth. Along with providing clean electricity, the wind farm is anticipated to generate annual income for the towns of Høyanger and Sunnfjord, as well as contribute to local value creation throughout the wind farm’s construction and operation.

Earlier this month, Aker Solutions joined forces with Mainstream Renewable Power, Ocean Winds, and Statkraft for the upcoming Utsira Nord floating wind project in Norway. The companies would collaborate to develop economical, sustainable technology for the project, as per the terms of the agreement. These would include initiatives for design, building, fabrication, and installation, as well as other cost-cutting ideas and technology.
