About the wind farm

The Raftsjöhöjden wind farm consists of 11 GE 5.5-158 MW turbines with a total installed capacity of 60.5 MW. Eight of the turbines have a hub height of 141m and a tip height of 220m. The remaining three turbines have a 120.9 m hub height and 200m tip height. Construction was started during the autumn of 2020 and was completed early 2022.

The wind farm is connected to the local utility Jämtkraft's existing Ollebacken substation to Jämtkraft's 130 kV overhead power line, between Ollebacken and Kattstrupeforsen. A site office has been built adjacent to the substation, in the southern part of the site (between Raftsjöhöjden, Sikåskälen and Ollebacken). 

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.

Visiting the wind farm

Within the wind farm area, you are allowed to walk, go skiing, go snowmobiling pick berries and mushrooms, etc. During certain weather conditions you need to be careful and observe the warning signs particularly. When the temperature is near or below zero there is risk for falling snow and ice from wind turbines and met masts. For your safety, keep a distance to wind turbines and met masts to avoid the risk for falling ice and snow.

Within the wind farm, there are buried cables and pipes. If you (as a land owner or contractor) shall dig or perform work using machinery within the wind farm area it is important that you contact our site manager well in advance to ensure safety for you and the facility. 

If you encounter strange sounds from a turbine or something else that not appears to be normal we ask you to contact us directly. If you have questions or want to know more about the wind farm, please contact us in Vasa Vind at:
