Planning 250 windmills at sea in northern Norway
Troms Energy is planning to build a gigantic park of 250 windmills outside the coast of northern Norway. The total costs of the project could be up to 2.5 billion EUR, reports Barents Observer.
The planned windmill park outside the coast of northern Norway will produce two percent of Norway’s total energy production. That’s four times the size of one of Norway’s largest hydro power plants in Alta. The park shall also be able to use wave energy.
“Our goal is to be Norway’s top company on wind energy technology,” says Oddbjørn Schei in Troms Kraft to Norwegian newspaper Nordlys.
The windmill park will occupy a large area at sea and some of the mills will reach up to 110 meter above sea level.
