Our wind projects under development and plants in operation


Projects under development

  • Location: Bordsjö, Aneby
  • Status: Permit application filed
  • Project manager: Rickard Olsen

Bordsjö Fideikommiss and BayWa r.e. have agreed to jointly study the possibility of establishing wind power on Bordsjö Fideikommiss's land holdings in Aneby Municipality, Jönköping County.

Together we hosted positive dialogue meetings with particularly concerned local residents and politicians in Aneby municipality during the month of September. The project is still at an early stage of development and there is no proposed placement of wind turbines as of today.

In September 2013 we held positive dialogue meetings with concerned local residents and politicians in Aneby municipality to communicate our ambitions and obtain information about the conditions. During December 2013 and September 2016, consultations with authorities were held.

Inventories concerning the impact on birds, bats, landscape and natural and cultural values have also implemented during 2013-2016.

Wind measurement is on-going since June 2013.

Consultations

Between October 24 and November 29 2016, public consultations were held for Bordsjö wind power farm. We thank you for the constructive discussions and opinions received during the consultation period. The opinions will now be compiled and addressed in a consultation report prepared for an upcoming permit application.

  • Location: Furuby, Växjö
  • Status: Existing permit in legal force. New permit application filed
  • Project manager: Rickard Olsen

BayWa r.e. is planning to construct a wind farm on the Furuby 8:15 property in Växjö municipality.

The project area is located north of national highway 25, approximately 3,5 km east of Furuby. An environmental permit for 11 turbines with a tip height of 150 meters was received 2011-11-11 from the County Administrative Board in Kronobergs county. The permits are in legal force since January 24th 2013.

Since the original permit application was made, the technology development has progressed and today there are wind turbines that have a higher environmental yield in comparison to those previously planned. The new technology provides the ability to reach higher efficiency with larger rotors, which usually means fewer turbines in the corresponding geographical area.

In May 2015, a new EIA was prepared and application for an environmental permit comprising 10 wind turbines with a total height of maximum 220 meters submitted to the County Administrative Board in Kalmar County. You are welcome to contact us or the County to take part of the application documents.

On December 15th 2015, the City Council in Växjö municipality decided to approve the 10 wind turbines planned for Furuby wind power farm. Thus, the matter may go to decision by the County Administrative Board in Kalmar County.

Wind measurement is ongoing since January 2009.
