Hästliden – Part of Markbygden Phase 3

Hästliden is a sub-project to Markbygden – Phase 3. The project is under development by Svevind. All figures and values (above) relating to the number of turbines, power output and estimated output are preliminary and subject to change during project completion.

Hästliden Vind AB (subsidiary of Svevind AB) has permission to build and operate wind turbines within the northwestern part of Phase 3 in Markbygden. The project area is called Hästliden. Because the permit limits the height and operating time of the wind turbines in a way that means that the wind resource cannot be extracted in the best way, the company has applied for a new permit according to the environmental code for the northwestern part of the stage.

The permit application was submitted to the Land and Environment Court on 1 July 2021 and will now be processed and examined by the court. The permit for the south-eastern part of Phase 3 in Markbygden has already been transferred to Önusberget Vind AB.

The new planned activity with higher works than in the existing permit is subject to a permit according to the Environmental Code, which means that a specific environmental assessment must be carried out and that an environmental impact statement (EIA) has been drawn up by the operator. As the operation is assumed to have a significant environmental impact, the consultation has been carried out as a scoping consultation, where the public has also been invited and given the opportunity to submit their views. The scoping consultation has been carried out from June to September 2020.

The application covers a maximum of 85 wind turbines in the Hästliden project area with a maximum total height of 300 metres. Prior to the application, Hästliden Vind has carried out several investigations and inventories. The environmental effects of the operation have been investigated, as have measures to reduce the operation’s environmental impact. Received questions and opinions from the consultation have served as a basis for the work on the environmental assessment, including the environmental impact statement, where, among other things, the issue of environmental effects and protective measures has been addressed.
