Länsterhöjden / Storflötten

On June 5, 2015, the environmental permit for the Länsterhöjden wind farm became final. The project encompasses an area for up to 20 wind turbines. According to the permit, the total height of the turbines can be up to 240 meters.

The wind farm is located in the north-western part of Ånge Municipality. The village of Överturingen lies about seven kilometers south of Länsterhöjden and the town of Ånge is approximately 30 kilometers east of Länsterhöjden.

Adjacent to the Länsterhöjden wind farm is the Storflötten wind farm, which is being planned by Turinge Energi with which SCA Energy is cooperating. Storflötten has an environmental permit for up to 36 wind turbines with the same total height as the Länsterhöjden wind farm.

Wind conditions are favorable, as shown in wind measurements conducted with masts at the Länsterhöjden wind farm, which took place between March 2012 and autumn 2014

Electrical connections from the wind farms to the Rätan main circuit station have been ensured. Jämtkraft Elnät AB was awarded a concession (permit) to construct power lines to the wind farm in September 2017.


The permit application for the Björnsjöbodarna wind farm was submitted to the Västernorrland County Administrative Board on August 29, 2015. The wind farm initially included up to 130 turbines distributed across four wind areas. Following a project reduction, the application is now for 73 turbines across two wind areas. The total height of the wind turbines is planned to be not more than 220 meters, at the tip of the rotor blades.

The project (refer to the area map) is located on the boundary between Bräcke and Ragunda municipalities about 10 kilometers south of Stugun in the county of Jämtland.

During the consultation period, the wind farm was planned to encompass 190 wind turbines with a maximum height of 240 meters distributed across five wind areas. Following consultation and the completion of investigations, the scope of the wind farm has been adjusted to 130 wind turbines and the total height has been reduced from 240 to 220 meters. After additions and revisions, the application is now for up to 73 turbines.

The choice of wind turbines and supplier will take place at a later stage. The total production capacity is dependent on the number of wind turbines that will ultimately be built and the output from these turbines. Production is currently estimated at approximately 1,000 GWh/year or more, based on the assumed output and view that 73 turbines can be built. This corresponds to electricity consumption for about 50,000 electrically-heated single-family homes or household electricity for 200,000 single-family homes.
