Partnering with local communities is one of the pillars of Falck Renewables Sustainability approach, a commitment we are willing to export from the UK to the other countries where we operate. Under such a spirit, we arranged on June, 10th a field trip to the Åliden wind farm, in Sweden, where wind turbines are currently being erected.
Fifty members from the local community gathered at the communal house in Trehörningsjö for an information meeting about the project and a briefing in health and safety .
A site visit was then organised to Åliden wind farm, situated north of the village. The site visit offered the chance to see equipment such as cranes, turbine components and newly erected wind turbines up close and to ask questions to the people working on the project.
The Åliden wind farm is expected to be put into operation later this year.
