Our Munkflohögen wind farm is located south of the village of Munkflohögen, in the municipality of Östersund, and was commissioned in 2019. The wind farm consists of 23 wind turbines. Vasa Vind has been involved in both the development and construction of the wind farm and is also responsible for its operation.

In 2020, construction of the adjacent Åskälen wind farm was also completed. The parks are linked by a connecting road that simplifies and shortens transportation within the parks. A joint site office for both wind farms, centrally located within the Åskälen wind farm, was completed during the construction of the Munkflohögen wind farm and is built by a local company using wood from the local area. The site office provides a very good working environment for site managers and wind power technicians.

A new 33 kV / 130 kV substation has been built in the eastern part of the wind farm, for connection to Jämtkraft’s 130 kV line between Ollebacken and Kattstrupeforsen.

Do you have any questions?

Do not hesitate to contact the site manager - Tomas Lif.

Staying in the wind farm

Within the area you can still hike, ski and snowmobile, pick berries and mushrooms, etc. However, in certain weather conditions you need to be alert and pay particular attention to the warning signs. When temperatures approach zero degrees or colder, there is a risk of ice and snow falling from wind turbines and masts. For your safety, you should avoid being near wind turbines and masts due to the risk of falling ice and snow.

There are buried cables and pipes within the wind farm. If you (as a landowner or contractor) are going to dig or carry out work with machinery within the wind farm area, it is important to contact the site manager well in advance to ensure that neither you nor the wind farm’s equipment is damaged.

If you notice a turbine noise or anything else that seems abnormal, please contact us immediately. If you have questions or other concerns, you can also reach us at Vasa Vind via:
