The project is located in the southern part of the Municipality of Gamvik kommune, County of Finnmark.
The consent application was sent to the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) in April 2005 and the consultation period ran through June 2005. The entire 12.5 km2 planning area is owned by Finnmarkseiendommen (Finnmark Estate agency). No land lease has been signed for the area.
The consent application calls for 100 MW of installed capacity. The production is estimated at 350 GWh, corresponding to the electricity consumption of roughly 17,000 Norwegian households. The wind resource at the site has been modelled and the results were excellent.
The planned wind farm will most likely be connected to the central grid in Adamselv through a new approximately 35 km, 132 kV overhead line, or through a 10 km connection to an upgraded gridline between Adamselv and Kjøllefjord. A separate grid application was submitted to the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate in 2012.
