Luxcara and GE Renewable Energy announced an agreement to deliver 753 MW of onshore wind capacity with the Onusberget wind farm in northern Sweden. The project will be the largest single onshore wind farm in Europe and GE's largest onshore wind farm contract outside of the US. Luxcara has already started infrastructure work, and GE will begin installing turbines as early as July of this year. GE Renewable Energy will supply 137 of its Cypress 5.5 MW turbines, a powerful turbine with a 158 meter rotor, ideally suited for the project site's wind speeds and climate. The turbine blades will be equipped with an innovative ice mitigation system, ensuring a stable level of availability and reduced downtime. The parties also agreed on a 25-year full-turbine maintenance and service contract.
The project with its sub-parks Kallamossen and Djupdal will produce enough power to supply electricity to the equivalent of more than 200,000 Swedish households per year and will save close to 1,000,000 tons of CO₂ over its lifetime.
Luxcara is an independent asset manager offering equity and debt investment opportunities to international investors in the global renewable energy market.
