Finnish utility Fortum said it is planning a 50-50 wind farm joint venture with Orsa Besparingsskog, a land and forest cooperative in Sweden.
The venture would spend between 22-33 mln eur on up to eight 2-3 megawatt wind power plants in the Orsa Finnmark area of the province of Dalarna in central Sweden.
Fortum said the investment would be part of a long-term plan to raise its ‘environmentally-benign’ power generation capacity.
Most of the 7 bln eur Fortum has spent on CO2-free capacity since 2000 has been for nuclear and hydro-energy projects.
