A park for all
With its 55 turbines, Midtfjellet Vindpark is the largest of its kind in Norway. It represents the very latest in wind turbine technology and, by placing the turbines closely together, we have achieved clear economies of scale benefits in the form of infrastructure, operation and maintenance. In addition, the mountain is now accessible to disabled persons and others who were previously unable to make the trip. Roads in the area have been prepared for sports and other outdoor activities in new, exciting ways. We wish a warm welcome to everyone who wants to make use of the area, all year round!
Technology and nature. Take a look!
Since the beginning of construction, we have held guided tours for around 17,000 people. The purpose of such tours is to show what we have managed to do. We want to tell people how the 55 wind turbines produce environmentally friendly electricity and demonstrate how the area is now far more accessible for use by the general public than ever before. Would you like to know more about our guided tours? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Quality in every respect
A modern wind park demand quality in every respect. The starting point for the best possible wind park consists of wind assessments and the correct placement of the turbines in relation to wind conditions. The right turbine must also be chosen for the various turbine placements. This includes the correct height, rotor diameter and so on. Our turbines make use of about 55% of the energy in the wind. The rotor area of the largest turbine covers 10,746 square metres (an international football pitch covers 7,140 sqm). Rotor-tip speed is about 300 km per hour. The electrical installation in the wind park is designed to keep electricity loss to a minimum.
