TÜV SÜD assesses planned 372 MW wind energy project in Sweden for Prime Capital and Enlight

On behalf of Prime Capital AG and Enlight, TÜV SÜD reviews the technical aspects of a large, planned wind energy project in Sweden. With a total capacity of 372 MW, the Björnberget wind farm is one of the largest onshore wind energy projects in Europe that are scheduled to start construction this year. As a Technical Advisor, TÜV SÜD makes a significant contribution to investment security.

Over the next two years, a wind farm with a total of 60 SG 5.X-170 wind turbines from Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy will be built at the Björnberget site in central Sweden. The turbines have a nominal output of 6.2 MW and the largest rotor diameter in the onshore sector. The Björnberget project is being built and managed by Prime Capital AG. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2020 and completion for the beginning of 2023. The project is jointly realized by the Prime Green Energy Infrastructure Fund (PGEIF) from Prime Capital and Enlight Renewable Energy Ltd. from Israel.

On behalf of Prime Capital and Enlight, TÜV SÜD has been commissioned as Technical Advisor with a comprehensive review of the technical fundamentals. This includes the examination of wind conditions and energy yield, the project design and the grid connection, the technical examination of the construction contracts and the construction setup, the technical examination of the operating contracts with special consideration of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) under negotiation and the operating expenditures (OPEX) as well as the risk assessment of the investment expenditures (CAPEX) and the construction schedule.

The critical examination of the technical fundamentals at an early stage has a positive effect on the efficient implementation and success of the entire project.
