ENERCON handed over to Energy Infrastructure Partners (EIP) the first 25 wind energy converters of the 250 MW Markbygden Phase II North project before the scheduled end of the year deadline.
To date, 47 wind energy converters have been installed at a wind farm in northern Sweden. ENERCON will install a total of 63 E-138 EP3 wind energy converters over the course of the project, the bulk of which was purchased by institutional investors advised by EIP in May of last year.
Despite delays caused by subcontractors and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the last quarter of 2020, the first wind energy converters were handed over successfully.
Another 22 wind energy converters are expected to be taken over in Q1. The remaining 16 will follow in fall of 2021.
Investors advised by EIP bought up to 85 percent of the shares in the onshore wind farm in the municipality of Piteå, in the northern province of Norrbotten, Sweden. ENERCON itself remains a long-term shareholder with a minority of shares, underlining its long-term strategic interest in Sweden as a place for wind energy. In this project, ENERCON is both a primary supplier of wind energy converters and a long-term full-service partner.
