About the project
Stigshöjdens vindpark ligger cirka 35 km sydväst om Örnsköldsvik. Byggnationen startade våren 2017 och parken överlämnades till ägarna, investeringsbolaget Fontavis, i september 2019.
Anläggningen består av 6 vindkraftverk med en total installerad effekt om ca 22 MW och en förväntad årsproduktion om ca 62 GWh. Det motsvarar den årliga förbrukningen av hushållsel för ca 12 000 svenska hushåll (5 000 kWh/hushåll). Totalhöjden på vindkraftverken är 150 m.
OX2 ansvarar för driften av vindparken.

OX2 and our suppliers are guests in the local communities. For us, it is extremely important to create dialogue with and show respect for the people who live and work in the local area. This includes transparent communication, creating local jobs, business sector development or financial grants through community funds or property tax, depending on the market and conditions in the area.
The expansion of renewable energy should not come at the expense of nature, and it is not enough for us to mitigate climate change. We have long worked to minimize our negative impact on nature and are now taking decisive action towards our goal of nature-positive wind and solar farms by 2030.
Our projects are sustainable by design, from early planning to construction and management.
It is possible to hike, hunt, or pick berries and mushrooms in the wind farm area, with respect to the area's warning signs and prevailing weather conditions. Caution should be observed in certain weather conditions. It is unsafe to be near the wind turbines during thunderstorms and when there is a risk of ice or snow falling from the wind turbines. Therefore, please pay attention to the local weather conditions. Ice accumulation on wind turbines occurs at temperatures just above 0 °C and colder, especially during snowfall or when the turbine is covered with fog or clouds. A safety distance of at least 400 m should be maintained to each wind turbine during these conditions.
