posted in: Current Wind | 0

The wind power company VindIn goes from word to deed. A number of concrete steps are now being taken to realize the goal of building an annual capacity corresponding to 1 TWh:

• The first wind farm in Skutskär a mile south of Gävle has just been commissioned
• The environmental permit application has been submitted for the first major wind farm in Solberg ten miles west of Örnsköldsvik.
• A few more projects are under development, located in the vicinity of our owners' operations.

VindIn also notes an increased interest among landowners to sign a right of use agreement with a designer who has both the capacity and the will to build and own long-term wind turbines.

Our owners have a great interest in us now advancing in our plans. Signing a number of new leases will be an important complement to the land that our owners can make available, says Anders Lyberg, CEO of VindIn.
Several landowners have agreements with other players that are now expiring or terminated. During the autumn, VindIn addresses both these and other landowners with good wind locations who are interested in signing lease agreements for the construction of wind turbines.
