The Markbygden wind farm will be constructed in three phases and will comprise a total of 179 wind turbines with a total capacity of 650 MW. This makes it the largest onshore park in Europe. For the first phase of the wind farm, Peikko will initially deliver 16 gravity foundations by the end of the year.

“Despite the tight project schedule, the response of Peikko’s experienced wind team has been swift and competent. From the foundation design to the delivery of the materials on site, Peikko’s professional performance has impressed us”, notes Nils Pettersson, Assisting Project Manager at NCC Sverige AB.

“Currently Peikko is the leading onshore foundation technology supplier in the Nordic countries, and we are very proud to enhance our position in Sweden by participating in the Markbygden Wind Park project. The cost-efficiency of Peikko’s gravity foundations results from effective use of materials with reduced site assembly and construction time”, comments Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
