Nordic energy company Vattenfall has reported that the first phase of construction has been completed on its Lillgrund wind farm. The facility, when finished later this year, will be the largest wind power plant in Sweden.
All the foundations have now been laid for the facility, which Vattenfall is building in The Sound. At the end of the summer, the wind power plants themselves will be erected and the entire farm will be ready to come on-line at the end of 2007.
More than half of the construction work has already been completed. Lillgrund will be generating electricity for household customers in just a few months, promised Anders Dahl, head of Vattenfall wind power.
The electricity generated at Lillgrund will be enough to supply household electricity to more than 60,000 homes.
