Falck Renewables: Brattmyrliden wind farm reaches commercial operation
Milan, Italy, 30 June 2021 – Falck Renewables S.p.A. brings a further 74.1 MW of new wind capacity into operation with its Brattmyrliden wind farm in Sweden reaching Commercial Operations Date (COD).
The wind farm, located near the town of Trehörningsjö, in the municipality of Örnsköldsvik, is expected to generate up to 263.5 GWh of electricity per year.
The plant benefits from a 10-year corporate virtual power purchase agreement with global aluminum packaging provider Ball Corporation, signed on 22 July 2020 and covering around 70% of the electricity produced by the wind farm.
Part of the proceeds generated by the plant are devoted to a community benefit scheme now active in the area of Trehörningsjö. The scheme supports local projects in areas such as rural development, education, environment and recreation. The projects are selected by local association Brattmyrlidens Intresseförening which autonomously runs the fund.
This approach is fully aligned with Falck Renewables’ mission of creating shared value with the local communities in the places where it operates.
