Fosen Vind is an exciting new sustainable power project, located in Norway, that comprises a collection of six high-tech wind farms. Together, these six wind farms will offer a combined power output of as much as 1,000 megawatts, which will mark out this particular project as the largest of its kind in Europe.

A joint venture between Statkraft, TronderEnergi and Nordic Wind Power, the Fosen Vind project's arms will be located on the Fosen peninsula, the island of Hitra and in the area of Snillfjord. These locations are claimed to offer the very best conditions for generating wind power in Europe, and is capable of pumping out 3.4 terawatt-hours of electricity per year.

Ultimately, this project shows how smart engineering can lead to the harnessing of natural gifts for the greater good.
