In January 2019, the 200MW Vindin portfolio was acquired by NTR REIF II. The wind portfolio consists of three operational wind farms totalling 94MW (Trattberget, Skutskär, Svakskulla) and two projected wind power projects totalling 108MW, which includes Norra Vedbo (86MW).
NTR Sweden Holdco 2 AB is NTR REIF II’s registered holding company for the Vindin portfolio and manages the current three operational wind farms. Vindin Vedbo AB holds the lease agreements and construction permits for the Vindin Vedbo project.
In order to best achieve the Sweden’s energy goal that it will have 100% renewable electricity production by the year 2040, the areas designated for wind power must be used efficiently. Thanks to technological development, the Vindin Vedbo project can contribute to increased renewable energy production to a significantly greater extent than was anticipated when the permits were originally issued.
The development of Vindin Vedbo began in 2010 and after extensive investigations* and statutory permit processes, environmental permits were obtained for both sites (Knohult and Älgön) in 2016, with conditions for energy production to commence no later than December 2023.
Construction of Vindin Vedbo has begun in March 2021 at both sites (Knohult and Älgön) and is expected to be commissioned in Autumn 2022.
When complete, Vindin Vedbo will:
*The investigations were carried out in accordance with regular procedures in order to adapt the design of the wind farms for the least possible impact on natural and cultural values.
All project related traffic to and from the sites will be directed to road 132 and road 975 via the permitted site entrances and internal road networks.
