Sørfjord wind power park
Sørfjord wind farm was fully commissioned in 2020. The plant consists of 23 wind turbines. Located in a remote area on top of a mountain, the wind farm is a logistical miracle with its serpentine roads.
Number of turbines
Sørfjord wind farm is located in Hamarøy. The wind farm’s 23 turbines have a total installed capacity of up to 99 MW. This corresponds to lighting up a town of about 91,000 households.
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. The turbine supplier Siemens Gamesa is taking care of the maintenance of the wind power turbines.
Fortum and EIP's VinnVind (WinWind) funds can be applied for to support sports, cultural, environmental and youth activities in Hamarøy. The contributions from the VinnVind funds promote local development and activities and increase the appeal of living, working or visiting the areas around Sørfjord wind farm. The Hamarøy and Narvik municipalities process the applications for the VinnVind funds. The first contribution will be shared later this year.
