UK politicians urge reconsideration of PPP projects

KfW IPEX-Bank and SEB have agreed to finance €84.5 million for the 84.6MW Skogberget wind development project, one of the initial wind farm planned as part of the massive Markbygden onshore wind energy complex in Sweden.

Along with developer Svevind, Enercon is a partner in the Markbygden project, which in 2010 was being touted as potentially the biggest onshore wind complex in the world with a capacity up to 4GW. The project will use 36 E-92 wind turbines from Germany's Enercon.

In May 2008, Markbygden Vind AB, applied for permission to build and operate a large-scale wind-power plant in Markbygden, Pitea Municipality. The application concerns an area of app. 450 km2.

Markbygden and the high situated, western parts of Infjärden, west of Piteå have very good wind conditions. The area is, for most part, sparsely populated and hence there are comparatively few contrary opinions. Furthermore, the area is crossed by there large power lines, suitable for transportation of electricity.

In May 2008, Enercon became part owner in Markbygden Vind AB. The contract between the main owner Svevind and Enercon represents both co-operation in the realization of Markbygdenprojektet and a supply-guarantee of the turbines for the project.
