It consists of 27 turbines. Each turbine has a capacity of 4.2 MW, which gives a total installed capacity of 113.4 MW. Planned annual production is 405 GWh. Construction of the wind farm began in 2018 and completed in 2020.
Kvendallsfjellet wind park was developed by Fosen Vind DA, a joint venture between the Norwegian TrønderEnergi and Statkraft, and Nordic Wind Power DA, formed by an European investor consortium of Credit Suisse Energy Infrastructure Partners and Swiss BKW AG.
Fosen Vind is Europe's largest land-based wind power project, consisting of six wind farms with a combined capacity of 1057 MW.
The heavy machinery contractor, Johs J. Syltern, were the prime contractor for civil work and infrastructure, consisting of establishment of internal roads, hardstands, and preparation of the turbine spots. Their sub-contractor Stjern Entreprenør, performed the technical assembly of steel components and foundation casting work.
Tensioning of FATBAR® rock anchors was performed by the sub-contractor, Hytorc Norge AS. Peikko Group’s Norwegian Sales Office, Peikko Norge AS arranged the delivery of rock foundation technology.
Peikko were responsible for foundation design and the structural calculations to 27 wind turbine foundations, combined with manufacturing, and supply of customized steel components, such as:
- FATBAR® rock anchors
- Tower adapter plates with tower connection bolts
- Drilling templates- and assembly system
- Advanced reinforcement steel technology.
These wind farms are located in the Fosen peninsula, the central part of Norway. The coastal area has some of the best conditions for wind power production in all of Europe. All six wind farms together produce a total of 3.6 TWh of renewable energy every year. The Fosen project is larger than the total current wind power capacity in Norway.
