Norwegian construction company Veidekke has secured a design and build contract from Stena Renewable to construct the foundations and associated roads for 47 wind turbines in Sweden.
Under the contract worth SEK 265m ($27.5m), Veidekke will be responsible for the construction of roads leading to every wind turbine along with the associated areas for cranes, storage of turbine wings, and others.
The firm will also complete the internal power grid connection, and will do ground work along with cast foundations for the wind turbines.
The project is schedule to be completed in December next year.

Stena Renewable is investing SEK 2.2bn ($230m) for the construction of the Vindpark Tvinnesheda, with a total output capacity of 210MW.
The firm said that the project has been realised through cooperation between wind power operators and the grid owner E.ON, and a grid reinforcement loan from Svenska kraftnät, the Swedish power transmission authority.
Stena Renewable CEO Peter Zachrisson said: “Veidekke has the required expertise and organisation to build as large a wind farm as Vindpark Tvinnesheda.
“In recent years, Veidekke has built two wind farms for us, and we are pleased to be able to realise yet another wind farm with them.”
