OX2 and SCA collaborate on wind power development

OX2 and SCA, which owns 2.6 million hectares of environmentally certified forest in northern Sweden, have signed cooperation agreement on wind power development. The goal is to realize, within a five-year period, approximately 1,000 MW of new wind power with an estimated annual production of about 2.3 TWh.

OX2 and SCA cooperate on wind power development in Sweden.

OX2 and SCA, which owns 2.6 million hectares of environmentally certified forest in northern Sweden, have signed cooperation agreement on wind power development. The goal is to realize, within a five-year period, approximately 1,000 MW of new wind power with an estimated annual production of about 2.3 TWh.

Initially, OX2 and SCA have identified a handful of suitable areas for wind power in Norrland, Sweden. OX2 and SCA have begun the development of these projects and additional areas may become relevant.

"We have high demands and develop only those projects that have the best conditions based on low production cost, stable return and high sustainability goals. Despite the high demands, we believe that we have great opportunities to achieve our common goal of realizing 1,000 MW within five years," says Hillevi Priscar, responsible for project development at OX2.

SCA and OX2 are companies that have been successful individually when it comes to the expansion of wind power in Sweden. SCA leases out forest land for wind power plants and in 2018 there were 324 wind turbines in operation on SCA's land with a total annual production of 2.6 TWh. At present, wind power is being expanded on SCA's land for production of an additional 4 TWh per year. OX2 has so far contributed to expanding 2.4 TWh and is currently building additional wind farms in Sweden with an estimated production of 2.2 TWh per year. For OX2, it is advantageous to work with such a competent partner as SCA, who has extensive experience and good local support.

"OX2 has extensive experience of running projects from development to wind farm in operation", says Milan Kolar, wind power manager at SCA. In SCA's ambition to grow within renewable energy, OX2 is therefore a good partner.
