The Bjerkreim Southern Cluster consist of three separate wind farms bordering each other, i.e. Eikeland-Steinsland, Gravdal and Skinansfjellet. The wind farms are located in the municipalities of Bjerkreim and Hå (Rogaland county) and will be connected to the grid via a joint substation.
30. April 2020:
On Wednesday 29th of April a significant milestone in the project was reached when the blades on the last of the 70 wind turbines were mounted. Installation progress has been very good for the last couple of weeks with an average of 4 turbines installed per week, and with this milestone acheived all that remains is the commissioning of 27 turbines as well as restoration of the site. It is expected that all turbines will be operational within end of June.
