Neoen Launches 57.4-MW Wind Farm and Battery Storage System in Sweden

French renewable energy company SA has officially opened a 57.4-megawatt (MW) wind farm and a 52-megawatt-hour (MWh) system (BESS) in , marking a significant expansion in its European portfolio.

In a LinkedIn post on Wednesday, Neoen highlighted the completion of the Storbrannkullen wind farm, located across Jamtland and Vasternorrland counties. Powered by 10 Nordex N163 turbines, the facility is anticipated to generate electricity equivalent to the annual consumption of 30,000 homes. The project is integrated into the operated by Germany's E.on.

Neoen secured agreements to sell a substantial portion of the wind farm's output. European packaging company Coveris signed a 10-year deal for 60% of the electricity and associated guarantees of origin, while digital infrastructure firm Equinix agreed to purchase 25% of the generated electricity, equivalent to 14 MW, through a power purchase agreement (PPA).

In addition to the wind farm, Neoen inaugurated its first major battery storage system in Sweden, named Storen Power Reserve. Located in Ragunda municipality, Jamtland County, the lithium-ion facility is set to provide ancillary services to Swedish transmission system operator Svenska Kraftnat.
