Vattenfall buys wind power project
Vattenfall has acquired a wind power project on Maltesholm, outside of Kristianstad, Sweden. The wind farm will consist of 18 wind turbines and will have the capacity to provide 25 000 households with electricity.
The plan is to construct 18 wind turbines with a maximum height of 150 meters and a total effect of 45MW. The continued planning will now proceed under Vattenfall’s direction but the collaboration with the landowner continues. “Through the cooperation with Vattenfall we can now complete our operations at Maltesholm with wind power, which will contribute with a substantial amount of renewable energy to the municipality of Kristianstad and enables future prerequisites to administer the cultural heritage at Maltesholm,” said Niclas Palmstierna, landowner at Maltesholm.
Through the acquisition, the wind farm will go under the name Höge Väg wind farm after the road that leads up to Linderödsåsen from Kristianstadsslätten. The road was built during the 18th century and is today considered a cultural heritage.
