Foyen represent a wind power company in its appeal of a judgement handed down by the Land and Environmental Court. Foyen’s client had previously had its application to build and operate a wind farm in the north of Sweden denied. The client’s application was refused, in part, due to the ongoing attempt to balance the coexistence of wind farms and reindeer herding and husbandry. On behalf of the client Foyen applied for and were granted leave to appeal by the Land and Environmental Court of Appeal. The case is of fundamental importance to the energy sector due to the key points involved – the coexistence between the traditional Sami way of life and the construction of wind farms providing renewable energy, a politically hot topic in Sweden.
Foyen represented a renewable energy company in a significant wind power project in Finland. The project is to date the largest unsubsidised wind power project in the Nordic region, comprising of four wind farms and 25 wind turbines. The projects total production is estimated to amount to approximately 380 GWh per year. Foyen assisted the client in the negotiation of both supply and service agreements.
