Svartvallsberget Wind Farm
Operation has begun on the Svartvallsberget Wind Farm in Sweden, John Laing's first overseas project in the onshore wind sector.
John Laing is 100% investor in the project, securing the company’s position in the sector following its acquisition of two UK wind farms in 2012. This wind farm is also John Laing’s first project in Sweden.
The project comprises the design, build, finance and operation of 10 2MW turbines. Construction started in April 2013 and power generation begun in Spring 2014. The project produces enough electricity to meet the needs of around 12,500 homes, making a contribution to securing the region’s energy supply, whilst offsetting 21,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum.
