Vardøya - ved polarsirkelen på Helgelandskysten


Vardøya has been developed as a part of the planning for larger offshore windfarms in the area. Vardøya is situated far from the coast line and it should give first and easy accessable offshore-experiences. The offshore projects were thoug not suceeding and Solvind Prosjekt AS bought the project including final building concession from Nord-Norsk-Vindkraft AS in November 2014. Solvind Prosjekt AS is 100 % owner of the project.


The wind farm is located on the island of Vardøya northwest of the island and village Selvær in the municipality of Træna in Nordland. Situated around 15 m above sea level on an uninhabited island, the surrounding is determined by heather, rock and the sea. The location has excellent wind conditions.


Two wind turbines with a total installed capacity up to 5 MW and an estimated yearly energy output of around 20 GWh are planned. The hub height of the wind turbines will be between 65 m and 85 m.  A measurement campaign was performed between 2008 and 2009. The grid connection point is located on the island of Selvær around 3 km from the wind farm.
