Lyse and Norsk Vind Energi enters agreement regarding the transfer of the Måkaknuten wind power plant

Lyse has entered an agreement for the sale of the Måkaknuten wind power plant (66MW) to Norsk Vind Energi AS. The agreement entails a transition period during which Norsk Vind Energi and Lyse will cooperate on the further development of the project.

The Måkaknuten wind power plant received its permit in 2012 and is part of the Bjerkreim cluster. Norsk Vind Energi is the biggest owner in the Bjerkreim cluster, with the Bjerkreim, Gravdal and Skinansfjelle wind projects.

Norsk Vind Energi is planning to develop and construct the Måkaknuten wind power plant together with the rest of the parks it owns in the area. Construction is expected to start in the second half of 2017. With this, Norsk Vind Energi will strengthen its position as Norway's biggest privately-owned wind power developer, and will have over 2TWh of new wind power under construction in 2017.

Lyse and Norsk Vind Energi are looking forward to further collaboration on Måkaknuten.
