E.ON has signed a joint-venture agreement with SCA, a producer of personal-care, tissue and forest products, under which they will develop a number of wind energy projects in Sweden.

The joint venture includes the areas operated by SCA Vind up until the license application: Hastkullen and Bjornlandhojden in Harnosand, and Kramfors and Timra municipalities. The agreement also covers wind power projects in Ljusdal and southern Ange.

"The joint venture includes approximately 270 wind power stations and a total energy production of more than 2 TWh, corresponding to the electricity required for warming 100,000 Swedish households," says Ake Westberg, head of SCA Energy.

Future investment decisions are expected by 2014 or 2015, the companies say.
