The Bjerkreim cluster incorporates 70, 4.2-MW Siemens wind turbines and is operated by Luxcara of Germany. Swedish utility Vattenfall will integrate the output into the Nordic grid, provide balancing services, and supply Facebook. The Bjerkreim deal is Facebook's largest single purchase of renewable energy and is Norway's largest wind project to date. (Source: Facebook, DataCenter Dynamics, 24 May, 2018)
