  • Company: Norsk Vind is Norway's largest private wind power company, that contributes to the electrification of industry, household, and transport.

Bjerkreim Southern Cluster, located near Stavanger, consists of three separate wind power plants (Eikeland-Steinsland, Gravdal and Skinansfjellet) that border each other. When you consider the wind power plants as one project, as it is for all practical purposes, it is currently the largest wind power project in Norway measured in installed capacity, says Magnus Grinde, project manager for Bjerkreim Southern Cluster at Norsk Vind.

The Bjerkreim Southern Cluster consists of 70 Siemens Gamesa 4.3 MW wind turbines. This gives an annual production of about 1,1 TWh, which is equivalent to the electricity consumption of about 60,000 Norwegian households. To put this in perspective, the wind power plants will be able to supply all inhabitants of Bjerkreim, Hå, Gjesdal and Klepp municipalities with their 53,000+ inhabitants with clean renewable electricity.

For Bjerkreim municipality, it is estimated that property-tax from the wind turbines Gravdal and Eikeland-Steinsland will provide increased annual tax revenues of more than NOK 10 million. In addition, Norsk Vind will provide a series of different tasks for Hå municipality in regards to a separate outdoor-plan for the Skinansfjellet wind farm. This means, among other things, that we install benches and facilitate outdoor life in the area, Grinde concludes.


Facebook has previously signed a 15-year power purchase agreement with the wind power plants.
