4 DECEMBER 2023 – LONDON
As announced by OX2 last week (30 November), Renewable Power Capital (RPC) has taken over operations of the 146MW Klevberget onshore wind farm in Sweden.
Klevberget wind farm comprises 24 turbines and is located near Sundsvall, in the Västernorrland County of Sweden. This is another positive step in RPC’s transition to an independent power producer providing clean, green energy to homes in Europe.
The handover of Klevberget follows OX2’s transfer of the Rustari, Puutikankangas, and Merkkikallio wind farms in Finland (totaling 170.5MW) earlier this year. This significant achievement marked RPC’s shift to wind farm operator – a milestone which was commemorated with three opening ceremonies in recent months and which offered local communities the unique opportunity to visit and learn more about the project.
RPC initially acquired Klevberget from OX2 in 2021, marking its entry into the Swedish market. OX2 will continue to oversee the technical and commercial management of Klevberget under a 15-year agreement.
In May this year, RPC also announced that Faurecia, a company of the group FORVIA, had signed a 10-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for almost all the output from Klevberget.
Kevin Devlin, CEO of Renewable Power Capital, commented: “We are delighted to take over our fourth wind farm from OX2, moving another step closer to fulfilling RPC’s ambition of becoming an independent power producer. RPC and OX2 have formed a long-term partnership, benefitting from OX2’s experience as a developer, and we look forward to continuing to work with the team.”

The transfer of the 44MW Puutikankangas and 44MW Rustari wind farms was announced on 29 March 2023. Puutikankangas, which is in the municipality of Sievi in the North Ostrobothnia region, and Rustari, which is in Kurikka city in the region of South Ostrobothnia, comprise 8 turbines each.
The Merkkikallio wind farm transfer was announced on 17 February 2023. Merkkikallio is in the city of Vaasa. The estimated production of the 15-turbine windfarm is 280GWh, which corresponds to the electricity consumption of around 56,000 households. It has an installed capacity of 82.5MW
