Labels and standards



The wind power development has so far been met by positive interest from both inhabitants and local authorities. Both citizens in the community of Vikna and the political authorities expect the development to have a positive long-term effect for the area. The power plant adheres to the latest national and EU environmental standards regarding protection of habitat, birds and biodiversity.

The development of the wind power plant has secured new roads and water supply for nearby inhabitants and the great ocean view has made this farm a popular tourist attraction.


New roads built for the wind farm have made the area more accessible and it has become a popular recreation area for both locals and tourists. To meet the requirements of the increased numbers of visitors, the municipality has built a small viewing centre, called Møllestua, between the turbines. Here you can enjoy the view of the wind turbines and the archipelago in all kinds of weather. You can make coffee, look at the photos of the construction of the wind farm and use the telescope to study all the small islands in the sea.
