About the project

The Hällberget wind farm is located in the west part of Överkalix municipality approximately 30 km west of Överkalix and 100 km north of Luleå in Norrbotten county.

Wind measurements show excellent wind resources which makes the area very suitable for wind farm development. Various investigations and surveys have been done to determine the suitability for wind farm development. The area has large areas of commerical forestry and many forest roads.

The permit application was submitted in 2014. The municipalicy approved the application and a permit was given in December 2019 where 56 out of 123 turbines were accepted. The permit was appealed and the Environmental court decision increased the permit to 57 turbines in June 2021. This permit was appealed and in February 2022 did the Supreme Environmental court decide to not take on the case, whereby the existing permit gained legal force.
