Hitra wind farm
Fosen Vind is realising Europe's largest onshore wind power project in Central-Norway, comprising six wind farms, with a combined capacity of 1,057 MW.
Construction commenced in 2016 and commissioning will be completed in 2020. Statkraft is responsible for project execution on behalf of Fosen Vind. The joint venture is owned by the Norwegian utilities TrønderEnergi and Statkraft, and the European investor consortium Nordic Wind Power DA.
The wind farms are located in the Fosen peninsula, Hitra and Snillfjord, in Trøndelag county in the central part of Norway. The coastal area has some of the best conditions for wind power production in all of Europe. When all six wind farms have been constructed, they will 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.
