Turbines Ready to Be Erected at Lake Vänern Wind Park
As announced previously, Morphic Wind will be delivering a complete wind park consisting of ten turbines with a nominal rated capacity of 3 MW each to the Lake Vänern Wind Park in Sweden. The Swedish Energy Agency has designated the area where the park is being planned an area of national interest for wind power. The park is a pilot project that is being conducted in partnership with PEAB, and is also one of the largest current wind power projects in Sweden and the only offshore wind park that is being built in a lake.
The components for the first three turbines are already on location in the province of Värmland and are ready to be erected. The actual lifting operation has been delayed slightly due to classification issues relating to the lifting platform (WestWind).
“We have been in discussions with several established classification associations regarding classification issues concerning the lifting platform. As the lifting operation is classified as a marine operation, we have chosen to commission Den Norske Veritas for final verification of the vessel. This will take significantly less time than the extensive work involved in obtaining a full ship classification. Weather permitting, the erection of the first of the three turbines will commence in week 47. Final delivery is scheduled for week 35 of 2009,” says Johannes Falk, Head of Information for the Lake Vänern Wind Park project and Executive Vice President Investor Relations at Morphic Technologies AB.
