Number of turbines
Nygårdsfjellet wind farm is located in Narvik municipality, in northern Norway. The 14 wind turbines are spread around one of the reservoirs of Nygård power plant, Skitdalsvatn.
The wind farm is jointly owned by Energy Infrastructure Partners (EIP) and Fortum, and Fortum operates the wind farm. The local utility company Nordkraft is responsible for the daily operation of the wind farm on behalf of Fortum and is responsible for all local operational tasks that are not related to the actual wind turbines, for example maintenance of roads and grid connections.
Local suppliers of snow removal, road maintenance and other services related to the operation of service buildings have an ongoing dialogue with Nordkraft.
