The Egersund wind power plant is located in the Åseheia and Kolldalsheia areas of the municipality of Eigersund, about 5-8 kilometres east of the town of Egersund. The entire project will be completed by the end of 2017. The Egersund wind power plant consists of 33 windmills with 3.4 MW turbines, and will have an installed output of 112.2 MW.
Annual output will be approximately 395 GWh, which corresponds to the annual consumption of approximately 20,000 households. The Egersund Wind Power Plant will cost around NOK 1.2 billion.
Norsk Vind AS, a Norwegian wind project developer, on behalf of Sino-Tan Renewable Energy Ltd is inviting qualified companies to submit a tender for providing legal services for the 100 MW Makambako Wind Power Project in Tanzania.
Two years ago, Egersund had the highest unemployment rate in the country. The historical development of renewable energy around Egersund, the country’s wind power capital, has been a big contributor to turning this trend around.
The Paris Agreement and ISBS, the UN climate panel, have demanded a faster pace in the transition to a low emission society. Norsk Vind AS wishes to be part of the solution and the change of pace towards zero emissions, and are seeking more competent employees.
