Wind turbine manufacturer Enercon and Markbygden Vind AB have signed a cooperation agreement to develop and install one of Europe's largest interconnected onshore wind farm projects with a capacity of between 3 and 3.5 gigawatts (GW). Expected to be completed by 2020, the wind farm is planned to cover an area of 450 square-kilometers in Tavelsjo, in the municipality of Pitea in north Sweden.

"This is not only fantastic news for the wind industry, but also an enormous boost for wind power production in Sweden." -- Wolfgang Kropp, Chairman, Svevind AB
