Wednesday 3 November 2021, 08.00 CET - Non-regulatory press release
OX2 has agreed to acquire from Vattenfall the rights to build the Klevberget wind farm in the municipality of Ånge, Västernorrland County, Sweden.
Under the agreement, OX2 will acquire 100 percent of the project from Vattenfall. The wind farm holds a legally binding permit and has an estimated capacity of approximately 150 MW. It will be an addition to OX2's Swedish project development portfolio for late-stage onshore wind power.
A group of local landowners developed the project until 2018, when necessary permit was obtained. After that Vattenfall took charge of the project, refining it further, for example with regards to grid concessions, detailed planning and complementary inventories.
"OX2's ambition is to begin construction of the Klevberget wind farm during 2022. We are looking forward to working alongside landowners, the Sámi community, residents and the municipality. We would like to thank Vattenfall for trusting us to continue to develop this project and for its successful development so far. When OX2 establishes wind farms, we always strive to achieve a positive impact on the nearby area, including greater biodiversity", says Hillevi Priscar, Country Manager Sweden, OX2.
"OX2 has the experience and competence needed for in a responsible way push this project further to a realization and by that contribute to our goal of a fossil-free living within one generation. Vattenfall's overall strategy remains the same, to develop, construct and operate wind power projects with around 2,000 MW in ongoing construction and around 10,000 MW under development, onshore as well as offshore", says Daniel Gustafsson, Head of Development onshore Wind Sweden, Vattenfall.
