Grönhult wind power park - rising of power plant

The first wind turbine at Grönhult wind farm is now being erected, where a total of twelve 5.6 MW wind turbines will be installed from Vestas.

In May 2021, construction of the wind farm began. The work began with the construction of roads and then parking spaces, foundations and the internal electricity network for the wind farm, which is located in Tranemo and Gislaved's municipalities. The park, which has a total installed capacity of 67.2 MW, will be put into operation at the end of the year.

The wind turbines are transported by special vehicles from Falkenberg and Karlshamn ports. They are very long and large vehicles so the transports take place at night to minimize traffic disruptions.

- We are delighted to have reached this crucial milestone in the Construction of the Gronhult wind farm. The entire project team have worked tirelessly, alongside our contract partners to  reach this point. We are confident that with the weather on our side we will be able to continue with the installation of all 12 turbines over the summer in line with our programme, Bryan Wright, Portfolio Director at Vattenfall.

In February 2021, Grönhult was sold to the investment company TRIG, The Renewables Infrastructure Group Limited. Vattenfall Vindkraft is building the park and will during operation be responsible for the management of the wind farm, which means, among other things, ensuring that permits are complied with and maintaining contacts with landowners and authorities. The twelve wind turbines will annually be able to supply about 40,000 homes with renewable household electricity.
