3 JANUARY – LONDON
Renewable Power Capital (RPC) has ordered 80 turbines totalling 553MW from Nordex for four onshore wind farms in Sweden.
With this order, RPC confirms its full commitment to constructing the four wind farms – Knäsjöberget, Sörlidberget, Vitberget, and Storhöjden – and to the Swedish renewables sector as one of its priority markets.
These wind farms together constitute RPC’s largest project to date and are expected to reach commercial operations between Q4 2025 and Q1 2026. Once completed, they will provide electricity to power the equivalent of 182,000 households.
This agreement also marks the start of a new partnership between RPC and Nordex, working together to deliver this significant project and provide Swedish households with clean, green energy.
Nordex will just be responsible for delivering, installing, and commissioning the wind turbines, while the BOP contracts will be executed by experienced contractors. Nordex will start delivering and installing the 80 turbines in Spring 2025.
This deal follows RPC’s announcement in December that it has taken over operations from OX2 of the 146MW Klevberget wind farm, also in Sweden.
Kevin Devlin, CEO of RPC, commented: “Sweden is a priority market for RPC, so we’re delighted to have reached this project milestone. We are also delighted to forge this new partnership with Nordex at a critical time in the evolution of the European renewables sector. As an investor driving the European energy transition, we’re pleased to have such a significant turbine contract fulfilling one of the most exciting wind farm projects in Europe.”
Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group, commented: “We are proud to be involved in this important wind cluster with our turbines and to once again be able to demonstrate the effectiveness of our anti-icing technology in such a demanding climatological setting. High Coast will broaden our experience with large-scale projects in Sweden and help us to consolidate our position as a leading provider of wind turbines in Scandinavia. We are very pleased to be working with Renewable Power Capital for the first time.”
