Europe’s largest wind farm on land – the Markbygden 1101 complex in northern Sweden – has reached a capacity of 1.12GW, its developer Svevind told Recharge.

The latest addition to the giant project in Swedish forests was the recently commissioned Markbygden-MB2 North sub-project with 252.7MW.

Another four sub-projects with a combined capacity of 1.45GW are currently under construction in the area and are expected to come online next year and in 2023. That will push the wind farm’s overall capacity to 2.57GW.
