The giant Markbygden 1101 onshore wind project in northern Sweden could still eventually reach 4GW of installed capacity and take its place as one of the world’s biggest turbine complexes – on land or sea – the developer behind it told Recharge.

German lead developer Svevind from the outset envisaged a capacity of 4GW for the project west of the northern Swedish city of Piteå. But German wind turbine manufacturer Enercon, which has developed and supplied machines to some of Markbygden’s sub-projects in 2019 was more cautions, saying such a massive size might be too ambitious.
