Enlight Renewable Energy announced the Bjornberget wind farm in Europe has achieved regulatory requirements to start the commercial operation.
The project comprises 60 wind turbines from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy with each turbine comprising 6.2 MW. The first turbine has commenced commercial operation and Enlight expects the entire wind farm to be commercialized during the first quarter of 2023.
The project company has entered a 10-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with a leading company, under which 70 percent of the wind farm’s electricity will be purchased in years 1-5 and 50 percent of the wind farm’s electricity will be purchased in years 6-10. The remainder of the electricity generated will be sold in NORDPOOL, the largest and most liquid power market across Europe.
