Building contractor & Entrepreneurs
Building contractor
The project is owned by Norsk Vind Egersund AS. Norsk Vind Energi AS represents the owners of the project, and will remain as project leaders.

Turbine supplier
The German turbine supplier Senvion will deliver the turbines for the project.

Entrepreneur
Veidekke has the overall responsibility for everything related to infrastructure. This means that it is Veidekke that both plans, and executes, any work related to roadworks, riggings areas, foundations, transformer stations, as well as all electric and technical deliveries of cables and transformers. Veidekke have also brought on-board Berthelsen and Garpestad as sub-contractors for road construction, as well as Otera in relation to powerline and VEO in charge of electrical deliveries.

Poweline entrepeneur
Otera is responsible for constructing the approximately eight kilometers of poweline that will connect the project to the pre-existing Kjelland transformer station.

(Construction of powerlines)

Ongoing construction
The construction of necessary roadworks began August 1st. 2016, and is currently under development throughout the construction site.

The first transportation of turbine component deliveries will start in the southern site area from 03.04.17. The commissioning phase of the turbines will commence 24.04 in the southern site area, and 29.05 in the northern site area. The mobilization for turbine commissioning means that the civil works related to road -and foundation construction, is coming to an end.

Location

Egersund Wind Farm is located by Åsheia and Kolldalsheia in the municipality of Eigersund, approximately 5-8 kilometres east of the city of Egersund.

It has been many years since our first thoughts turned to the potential of a wind farm in this area, and we are pleased that the project is finally underway!

Further information
If one wants to read further development details and paperwork concerning Egersund Wind Farm, these are readily available at the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate’s (NVE) webpage.

Egersund wind farm is currently under construction!

Important information:
The first transportation of turbine component deliveries will start in the southern site area from 03.04.17. There will be regular activity as of Monday night, up until Thursday night between 21.00 and 06.00.

The transports will be conducted at night to ensure as little impact on traffic on the public roads as possible. Vi apologize for any inconvenience this may imply. For more information click here.

Progress report
We are happy that the construction work has commenced rapidly, and that the progress is on schedule. During September 2016, the rigging area was established with temporary pre-fabricated cabins.

The roadworks construction will continue until April/May 2017. During this same period all the foundations for the different wind turbines will also be finalized, so that these are ready for turbine installation.

The raising of wind turbines will begin May 2017, and the last turbine is expected to be in place by September 2017. The whole project should be finished by the end of 2017.

Working hours
The project will be utilizing the following work hours: 7am to 9pm during regular workdays, and 7am to 3pm on Saturdays. No work is to be conducted on Sundays.

The entrepreneurs do not expect the work to cause disproportionate and unnecessary disturbances during these work times, thus avoiding inconveniencing neighboring properties.

Traffic

The first transportation of turbine component deliveries will start in the southern site area from 03.04.17.

The transportations will follow the same passage through Egersund town, southbound along Rv 44 Sokndalsveien, as the transports for Tellenes Windfarm. A new junction has been established by Hålandsdalen, and the transports will leave Sokndalsveien at this point and head up the newly upgraded road in Hålandsdalen. After passing Hålandsdalen, the transportation will continue along Rv 56 Heggdalsveien up to the construction site area.

There will be regular activity as of Monday night, up until Thursday night between 21.00 and 06.00. The transports will be conducted at night to ensure as little impact on traffic on the public roads as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may imply. For more information click here.

Safety measures measures

We kindly ask people to take care, and recognize that the area in question is experiencing heavy construction work. With this in mind we remind people to prioritize their safety, and refrain from travelling in the area. Warning signs will be placed around the area, and we ask that people respect their message.

We hosted an open day event in november 2016 with great sucsess, and we hope to invite to a similar event as we finish the windfarm.

Planned magnitude
Egersund Wind Farm will consist of 33 wind turbines, each generating 3.4 MW for a combined effect of 112.2 MW.

The expected annual production should be around 395GWh, which equates to the annual electric consumption of 20.000 Norwegian households.

Projected cost
The construction of Egersund Wind Farm will cost approximately 1.2 billion Norwegian kroner (NOK).

(The first components arrived 24.03.17)

During the winter, Veidekke and Otera have been busy with road construction, cables, foundations and the transformer station. Otera, who is in charge of the overhead powerline, will finalize construction of power masts in April 2017.
