Fortum completes acquisition of three Norway windfarms

Finnish energy company Fortum has finalised its acquisition of three windfarms from Norwegian company Nordkraft.

The transaction consists of the Nygardsfjellet wind farm, which is already operational, as well as the fully-permitted Anstadblaheia and Sorfjord projects.

Fortum is preparing for the construction of the Anstadblaheia and Sorfjord projects, which is expects to be commissioned in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

When built, the installed capacity of the three windfarms would total approximately 170 MW.

Fortum announced the acquisition in November last year.à‚
