Significant events after the end of the reporting period
  • The sale of the Ranasjö- and Salsjöhöjden wind farms - together totalling 242 MW - was finalised, which is expected to have a positive earnings effect of approximately MSEK 135 in total between 2021 and 2024, of which approximately MSEK 45 will be in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Arise and Hällefors Tierp Skogar entered into a partnership to strenghten the power supply in the middle of Sweden. The partnership provides Arise with an exclusive right to develop wind farms in the concerned areas.  The potential is estimated to more than 1,500 MW of new onshore wind power. The land areas have in common that they are all located in price area 3 and can potentially strengthen the power supply in a region that is in the proximity to the larger cities Stockholm, Uppsala, Västerås and Örebro, where the long term need for electricity is substantial.
