About the wind farm

The Raftsjöhöjden wind farm is in construction and will consist of 11 GE 5.5-158 MW turbines with a total installed capacity of 60.5 MW. Eight of the turbines will have a hub height of 141m and a tip height of 220m. The remaining three turbines will have a 120.9 m hub height and 200m tip height. 

Construction was started during the autumn of 2020 and will be completed during 2021.

The wind farm will connect at the local utility Jämtkraft's existing Ollebacken substation to Jämtkraft's 130 kV overhead power line between Ollebacken and Kattstrupeforsen.

A site office is under construction adjacent to the substation, in the southern part of the site. 

The Raftsjöhöjden wind farm lies north east of the village of Raftsjöhöjden, 20 km west of Hammerdal in Strömsund municipality in Jämtland county, approximately 60 km north of Östersund. The wind farm area is characterised by forestry.

Raftsjöhöjden wind farm is only about 10 km north of the Munkflohögen and Åskälen wind farms that where commissioned during 2019 and 2020 respectively.
