Valsneset is a flat peninsular in the Ørland municipality of Trøndelag, which has been zoned for wind farms and commercial activity. A test facility for wind power has been located at Valneset since the late 90s. The outer part of the test center is now replaced by three modern Vestas V117 turbines which commenced operations in January 2020. As of September 1st 2020, Greenstat holds a 3,33 % stake in the project, and are planning on increasing ownership over time.
The peninsula already has a Mowi AS (Marine Harvest) factory, which is being factored into the plan seeing as there are aspirations for further growth within the local naval sector. Who knows, there might be an opening for hydrogen production here as well? Furthermore, Valneset consists of five smaller Enercon turbines owned by Trønder Energi.
In Greenstat, we are very pleased to be operating an #Industrivind project delivering renewable energy to the industrial site and local area. We look forward to further collaborations with today’s owners in Valneset, while continuing to develop several more similar projects in existing industrial zones across Norway.
