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.
