A wind farm with a capacity of 144MW has been opened in Sweden.

The Sidensjö Wind Farm is located 15km west of Örnsköldsvik and 440km north of Stockholm.

It has 48 turbines and is expected to reduce 380,000 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

It has been developed by Nordisk Vindkraft which will also be responsible for operating the plant.

The Swedish company claims 200 jobs were created during construction and more than 1,000 people were trained in safety procedures.

Arne Lorenzen, CEO of Nordisk Vindkraft, said: “The Sidensjö wind farm is a significant milestone for our company. It will be a major contribution to reaching the climate targets in Sweden and in Europe.

German company Stadtwerke München owns the facility.
