The last turbine at wind farm Öyfjellet in Norway is now commissioned and all 72 wind turbines have started producing electricity.
This is an important milestone on the way to completing the project which has suffered delays since the start of the pandemic in 2020.
The Øyfjellet Project has a capacity of 400 MW and is covered by a 15-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Alcoa Norway AS. The wind farm supplies Alcoa’s production plant in Mosjøen with locally generated renewable electricity.
In 2019, Eolus sold 100% of the shares in Öyfjellet Wind AS, that owns all rights to establish the wind farm, including the 15-year PPA with Alcoa, to Aquila Capital.
