IKEA Invests in 90 MW of Wind Power from Vestas

July 4th, 2012 by  


As you must now, IKEA is no stranger to renewable energy. It seems to have several renewable energy projects going up month after month. The latest news is that it’s investing in 30 V90-3.0 MW turbines from Vestas. This is reportedly IKEA’s biggest wind power invest yet.

The turbines are for the Glötesvålen project in the municipality of Härjedalen, Sweden.

“The order is placed by Swedish developer and long standing Vestas customer, O2,” Vestas writes. “Delivery and installation of the turbines is scheduled to be completed in January 2015. Whereas O2 will be responsible for the development, construction and operation of the wind farm, it will be owned by Swedish home furnishing giant IKEA.”
