Skogberget wind farm has 36 wind turbines and is located in Markbygden, Piteå municipality, northern Sweden
The park is located within an area which has been designated by the Swedish Energy Agency as a national interest for wind farms and consists of a total of 36 turbines with a total installed capacity of about 85 MW.
The annual electricity production from the site is estimated at close to 200 GWh. The park has been in operation since 2014 and has approximately 22 years technical lifetime left.

Health and safety
With a zero accident vision, we work for an accident-free and healthy SCA.
The project is available for picking berries or mushrooms, hunting or hiking. But it is important to pay respect to the warning signs in the wind farm as well as the local weather conditions.
In certain weather conditions, it is dangerous to stay near wind turbines. This applies when there is a risk of ice throws from the wind turbines and in the event of thunder. In general, the risk of being hit by falling pieces of is very small, but ice formation does occur. The risk is grates at temperatures around -2 and +2 degrees, especially in fog or in combination with rain. In these weather conditions, you should not be closer than 250 m from the wind turbines.
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).
We can see growth and business opportunities in wind, bioenergy and biofuels. Rising demand for renewable and climate-friendly energy combined with the need for alternatives to oil and gas provide us with good potential to make a further contribution to the energy transition – by providing and developing sustainable energy.
