The last turbine at wind farm Storheia was erected on Monday, and Norway's largest wind farm of a 288 MW capacity is thus finished. Storheia is one out of six wind farms making up the Fosen Vind facility, which by its finalization in 2020 will hold a capacity 1.057 GW and thus be Europe's biggest onshore wind endeavor. Storheia is the second wind farm to be established. Roan of a 255.6 MW capacity was ready last year, while Hitra II of a 93.6 MW capacity will be finished last.

"We will be testing the turbines during the late summer and the fall. The plan is for the wind farm to enter commercial operation later in the fall," says Statkraft Project Director Jan Petter Birkeland in a press statement.
