Hamburg/Vaasa, 26 May, 2021
Luxcara, an independent renewable energy asset manager from Hamburg, is expanding an existing collaboration with the Finnish contractor VEO for electrical works in Northern Sweden. The turnkey contract covers the design and delivery of two large substations for the Önusberget wind farm.
With transmission capacity in excess of 400 MW each, the two substations will connect the sub-parks Djupdal and Kallamossen to the local 170 kV grid. The prefabricated modular substation buildings are prepared and tested at VEO’s manufacturing hub in Finland in advance of transport to site. The approach optimizes quality assurance and reduces the amount of work on site. Construction kicked-off last year and is progressing as planned. With the civil infrastructure already in place and energization targeted for the third quarter of this year, VEO is on track to complete all works by the end of 2021.
Alexandra von Bernstorff, Managing Partner of Luxcara, comments: „Long-term relationships are key for us as a buy-and-hold investor with a large portfolio across the Nordics. We are therefore very happy to be able to build on the success of our wind farms in Norway and expand our collaboration with VEO to Sweden”.
"We are thrilled to be part of such an important project of this scale and proud that Luxcara shows us renewed trust with this repeat order. Being a key player in the Nordic green transition has been a long-term target for us at VEO and this order secures our leading position in the market", says Willy Palm, Sales & Marketing Director for Power Distribution at VEO.
