Tonstad wind park starts commercial operations

Zug/Zurich, 3 September 2020 – We are pleased to share that Tonstad wind park, the largest single asset in the SUSI Renewable Energy Fund II, achieved commercial operations this summer. The wind farm with 51 Siemens Gamesa turbines is now fully operational and earns a fixed power price under a 25-year PPA with Norwegian state-owned aluminium producer Norsk Hydro.

At 208MW installed capacity, Tonstad is estimated to generate close to 700GWh of clean energy annually – equivalent to powering around 200,000 European households – and to save approximately 150,000 tons of CO2 each year.
