Björnberget wind farm is one of the largest onshore wind farms in Europe and is situated outside Ånge in the middle of Sweden.
The project is still in its early stages of construction and is expected to be in operation by the end of 2022. It is jointly owned by the Prime Green Energy Infrastructure Fund (PGEIF), managed by Prime Capital AG, a leading German Asset Manager, and Enlight Renewable Energy, a Tel-Aviv-listed independent power producer. Ramboll is responsible for assuring quality and compliance regarding legislation and standards during the construction and commissioning phases of project Björnberget.
The 372MW wind farm Björnberget will have an annual production of 1.1 TWH, which is equivalent to the electricity consumption of 300,000 households. RES Renewable, the world’s largest independent renewable energy development company, has been appointed as Balance of Plant contractor. PEAB and SIC, two leading construction and civil engineering companies, have been appointed as RES’ subcontractors for civil and electrical works. The project will be built with 60 of the latest generation Siemens Gamesa wind turbines, featuring the largest rotor diameter currently available in the onshore wind market, which will maximise production and minimise the cost of energy.
Ramboll is the Owner’s Engineer, which entails responsibility for checking and securing that constructions, design and project management are performed in accordance with legislation and standards. One important part of the assignment is to facilitate contact and dialogue between the project’s stakeholders and relevant Swedish authorities. To handle these complex issues throughout the project and ensure that construction of the wind farm goes according to plan and maintains a high quality from start to finish, Ramboll has staffed the project with global knowledge and local expertise.
Björnberget wind farm received Infrastructure Investor’s Global and European Renewable Energy Deal of the Year award in March 2021.
Björnberget wind farm will also create job opportunities both locally and internationally. From Ramboll alone, up to 200 people from five different countries will contribute to the project.
