Europe’s biggest producer of renewable energy has started construction on a new wind farm which will form part of a larger network in Norway.

Statkraft’s 1GW Fosen network will eventually have six separate wind farms, doubling wind power capacity in the country. On Monday the firm launched operations on the 288MW Storheia wind farm in Norway, the second, and biggest, component of the six wind park portfolio. Business Green declares that the €1.1 billion overall Fosen scheme will turn into Europe's major onshore wind power project once accomplished. 2.2km of access roads for the project have also started construction and are likely to be finalized by summer of 2017. Statkraft, TrønderEnergi and the European investor conglomerate Nordic Wind Power DA made known earlier this year they were uniting forces to deliver the project, with commissioning anticipated to be accomplished in 2020. Once finalized, the six projects could deliver 3.4TWh of clean power annually.
