There is frantic activity in the forests on the border between Östersund and Strömsund municipalities. Vasa Vind is building a large wind farm in Åskälen on behalf of a Dutch company. The interest in investing in wind power is great Rolf Rubensson, who is site manager at the building.
- It's a very big interest from investors, it's almost a little war on permits and those in the industry, he tells SVT Nyheter Jämtland.
Vasa Vind has already built the wind farm in Munkflohögen just nearby. Again, the Dutch company APG invested.
