Wind energy

Göran Eriksson, who founded GE Maskintjänst, has always worked for sustainable environmental projects and he was early interested in wind power. The work of getting an approved process to build and build wind power is long and sometimes difficult, but in the early 2000s we got our application approved.

In 2005, the construction of the first plant, which measures 75 meters, was completed and construction of a second plant began. Even there we chose to hire Vestas and this time we set up an 85 meter high plant. The works are located on Storön in Kalix. These two plants produce on average six times more electricity than our entire business consumes.

GE Maskintjänst AB was the first climate-compensating player in Norrland with its own 2 own wind turbines that continuously produce “clean” energy on the main grid.

We have also built an energy house in Gällivare where the energy consumption in total is less than 10,000 kWh / year, including household electricity.
