    Onshore Giant Up in the North 11/17/2017
    ... suited for the project site's wind speeds and climate. The turbine blades will be equipped with an innovative ice mitigation system by LM Wind Power, ensuring a stable level of availability and reduced downtime. In addition, GE will be responsible for maintenance for the next 20 years. Meanwhile, construction work has begun on the huge wind field. For this purpose, a separate gravel and a concrete plant was built, and 130 km of internal wind farm paths are being built on site, as reported by 4initia. This should make it possible to have up to 1,101 wind turbines installed once the entire cluster has been completed. Markbyden ETT alone increases the share of wind energy in Sweden's electricity mix by 12.5 percent. The partners have already found a buyer for their electricity: Norsk Hydro, one of the world's largest aluminium producers, has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) to supply its aluminium smelters in Norway with energy. This is the largest contract of its kind in the world to date. Giles Dickson, CEO of WindEurope, the European wind energy association, recently expressed his support for this type of contract: “These latest PPA deals are a significant vote of confidence in the PPA model. PPAs all started with the ICT sector sourcing renewables for their data centres. Now energy-intensive manufacturing sectors such as aluminium are buying wind. European industry has signed 2.6 GW of PPA deals in wind energy over the past four years, 1.3 GW of which were in 2017 alone. PPAs provide clean, reliable and competitive power for the corporate off-taker. What these deals also show is that countries like Sweden, the Netherlands and Norway that position themselves as ‘PPA-friendly’ are increasingly attracting major industrial investments on the back of that. We hope major countries like Germany, France, Italy and Spain, will take note and change regulations in a way that will allow corporates to procure more green electricity.” Giles Dickson calls for more courage from European companies to get involved in PPAs. (Picture: WindEurope) Wind energy has meanwhile established itself as the cheapest form of the new electricity generation. It is therefore not surprising that the recently published IEA ( International Energy Agency) World Energy Outlook shows that wind is well on the way to becoming Europe's leading power source shortly after 2030. In order to achieve this, however, individual national governments must ensure a legal framework in the long term, in particular through ambitious national energy and climate action plans that provide clarity on volumes and auctions after 2020. ...

    GE and Green Investment Group to Deliver 650 MW of Onshore Wind to Sweden 11/08/2017
    ... mitigation system by LM Wind Power, ensuring a stable level of availability and reduced downtime. GE is also providing a 20-year Full Service Agreement, and through its Grid Solutions business, will provide the high voltage switchgear for two collector substations at the wind farm. Pete McCabe, President & CEO of GE's Onshore Wind Business, said, "We are excited to have been chosen by Svevind to contribute to this massive project. Markbygden ETT marks our commitment to the Swedish onshore wind arena and extends our presence in Europe while showcasing our technical capabilities – with LM Wind Power – and project development and management differentiators." Project Financing GE Energy Financial Services and Green Investment Group ("the Sponsors") have jointly acquired the project from Svevind and invested more than €300M in equity to finance the wind farm. The transaction is Green Investment Group's first equity investment following its acquisition by Macquarie and its first investment outside of the United Kingdom. For GE, it represents GE Capital's strategy to invest in and structure financing solutions in support of GE in key global growth markets. Edward Northam, Head of the Green Investment Group in Europe, said, "This project is a landmark transaction on many fronts and represents the new frontier in European onshore wind. It demonstrates that in the right market, with the right location, the right technology and the right partners, it is possible to develop and attract private capital into new onshore wind farms." Mark Dooley, Global Head of Green Energy, Macquarie Capital, added, "We are pleased to build on our strategic partnership with GE and to continue our pioneering role in the global transition towards a low-carbon economy." Brian Ward, Head of Global Markets, GE Energy Financial Services, said, "Markbygden ETT represents GE's unique ability to package technology and investing expertise to structure integrated off-take and financing solutions. This, combined with the depth of talent at the Green Investment Group, enabled Markbygden ETT to reach financial close in the competitive Nordic onshore wind market and achieve many market firsts." The Sponsors' financial advisory teams sought a mix of funding from development institutions, the export-credit market and commercial banks familiar with the Nordic energy market. The project was financed on a non-recourse project financing basis with close to €500M in debt financing secured from European Investment Bank (EIB), Export Credit Guarantees of the Federal Republic of Germany (Hermes Cover), NordLB (acting as MLA advisor and ECA bank), KfW IPEX-Bank and HSH Nordbank. GE and Green Investment Group originated and structured a 19-year fixed volume Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with a subsidiary of Norsk Hydro, one of the largest aluminum producers in the world. The PPA enables Norsk Hydro to fix the price of a significant portion of the electricity demand for their Norwegian aluminum manufacturing facilities, producing approximately 100,000 tonnes of aluminum per year. NEAS Energy (part of Centrica plc) will provide an innovative structure for the sale of Elcerts (renewable energy certificates), balancing and hedging services for Markbygden ETT. The PPA is understood to be the largest corporate wind energy PPA in the world. Green Investment Group conducted a green impact assessment on the project, using the green reporting approach set out in its Green Investment Handbook. The Markbygden ETT project was developed over 15 years by Swedish wind developer Svevind. In total, its development work in the Markbygden area may lead to 1,101 wind turbines becoming operational, in what would be the largest collection of wind farms in Europe. The project will be realized on properties owned by Sveaskog Förvaltnings AB, Sweden's largest forest owner, SCA Skogsfastigheter AB, the largest private forest holding in Europe, and several private property owners. Wolfgang Kropp, CEO of Svevind, said, "Having worked on the development of the Markbygden cluster of wind farm projects since 2002, Svevind is very excited to see this partnership with GE Renewables, GE Energy Financial Services, and the Green Investment Group come to fruition. We are pleased to see the success of our hard work demonstrated by the attention the Markbygden ETT project has attracted from world class institutions such as these. We look forward to seeing this project, and future projects around Markbygden, constructed and contributing to the much-needed fight against climate change." ...
