We develop and pursue the expanding involvement in wind energy
To address the looming changes due to climate change, society needs to reduce its dependence on energy produced with fossil fuels and increase the share of fossil-free renewable energy. Wind power is one of the keys to coping with the transition.
Some of Sweden's largest wind power projects
Together with our partners, we contribute to the realization of some of Sweden's largest wind power projects. At the end of 2022, 685 turbines produced 7,3 TWh of windpower on SCA's land. Together with previously decided projects, production on SCA land is expected to increase from 2.6 TWh in 2018 to 9.5 TWh in 2023.
Long term goal
SCA has the long-term ambition to become one of Sweden's leading suppliers of fossil-free electricity produced by wind power.
Leases and development
Before construction, we participate as support for the projects up to and including the operational phase. True to SCAs strategy we also work with the acquisition of already existing wind projects.
We take care of your roads
As a large forestry company, we manage several thousand kilometers of road on our land and are responsible for road maintenance and snow plowing. We can help you as a park owner to manage your new roads. You can agree with us on, among other things; management, supervision and coordination of road maintenance. Naturally adapted to your needs.
Crushed products for road construction
As a designer or prospective owner of a wind farm, you need crushing material. We can offer suitable products for the construction of new roads and foundations as well as the material you need for road maintenance. When re-designing a wind project on SCA land, we can together identify opportunities to meet possible future needs through, for example, an extraction permit application.
Wind power is renewable and is one of the most environmentally friendly choices for extracting energy. A wind turbine of 6 MW in good wind conditions can produce approximately 18,000 MWh per year depending on the weather conditions. This equals the consumption of electricity of 900 electrically heated houses that have average electricity consumption of 20,000 KWh/year or the annual electricity consumption of 7,500 electric cars (estimated electricity consumption: approximately 2,400 kWh/year).
SCA is Europe's largest private forest owner with 2.6 million hectares of forest land. In several areas the good wind conditions make it attractive to develop wind power and SCA has signed several land leases with developers and project owners. An extensive expansion of wind power is currently underway and the demand for green electricity is estimated to continue to increase sharply.
