09. July 2010
Sway AS is granted a licence from the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) and Ministry of Petroleum and Energy (OED) for constructing a test turbine with accompanying infrastructure in Naturgassparken, Øygarden. The turbine will be located at the south of Ljøsøyna, within an area which is regulated for industrial purposes. The wind turbine will have a capacity of 10 MW and a rotor diameter of 145 meters.
The government is encouraging demonstration of new technologies, and testing of this windtubine will be of significance to reach the goal of commercializing ocean wind, says political advisor in OED Ivar Vigdenes.
