Bjornberget project begins generating electricity in Sweden

October 03, 2022

Enlight Renewable Energy’s Bjornberget onshore wind farm has achieved all necessary regulatory requirements to start moving to commercial operation.

Project Bjornberget in Sweden is one of the largest wind farms in Europe at 372MW and constitutes Enlight's largest operational project to date.

The project comprises 60 advanced wind turbines from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy with each turbine comprising 6.2MW.

The first turbine has commenced commercial operation and Enlight expects the entire wind farm to be commercialised during the first quarter of 2023.

At this stage, Björnberget has already begun to sell electricity in the Scandinavian market.

The project company has entered a 10-year power purchase agreement with a global leading company, under which 70% of the wind farm's electricity will be purchased in years one through five and 50% of the wind farm's electricity will be purchased in years six through ten.
