A Nordic project to test wind power in the fjells has been launched by the Nordic Windpower Association. The project is hoping to receive backing from the European Union's Thermie programme and will be administered by a small Swedish company, Agri Vind AB, and by a utility in Finland. A group with three Danish Vestas turbines and another group of three German Enercon units will be erected in two different locations close to the village of Hede in Sweden's Härjedalen fells. In Finland a group of three Bonus turbines will be placed north of Rovaniemi. The aim is to test how different kinds of wind turbines work in Arctic conditions and to find ways of adapting them to such harsh and cold climates.
