Tellenes wind farm opened in September 2017, being Norway’s largest wind farm at the time. The 50 wind turbines from Siemens are divided into three sub-areas. In total, the planning area has an extent of ca. 15 sqkm and the highest point in the project area is about 500 masl. The wind farm is built around the Titania ilmenite quarry. The wind power plant is connected to the power grid with a 9 km long 132 kV power line to a transformer station in Åna-Sira. The power produced is sold to Google through a 12-year power purchase contract. 

Tellenes wind farm was developed by Zephyr and Norsk Vind Energi and then sold to BlackRock, which is one of the world’s largest investment funds. Zephyr was responsible for the construction of the wind farm. Arise operates the wind farm on behalf of Tellenes Vind AS.
