Vattenfall: Important starting point for joint wind farm

Today, Skandia and Vattenfall inaugurate the joint wind farm Höge Väg
in Kristianstad municipality. The partnership began in December 2014
when the companies set up a joint company with shared ownership of
four wind farms.

The inauguration marks the start of a different form of partnership,
new both for Vattenfall and Skandia. Vattenfall, with many years in
the wind business, has no similar experience of external co-financing
and co-ownership in wind power. Skandia invests heavily in
infrastructure but has not been present in the energy industry
earlier.

"Vattenfall currently has 17 wind power projects at different
development stages in our portfolio in Sweden. We have ambitious
plans for a 100 percent renewable energy system. Co-financing with
Skandia enables further expansion. That's good for our respective
customers and it's good for Sweden", says Ingrid Bonde, CFO and vice
president Vattenfall.

A total of four wind farms are included in the joint company;
Hjuleberg and Högabjär-Kärsås in Falkenberg municipality, Juktan in
Sorsele municipality and Höge Väg. All four are in operation and
Hjuleberg was inaugurated in 2014.

"Skandia has successfully increased investments in infrastructure and
this wind power venture is important for us. By investing in wind
power, the returns from pension capital are twofold; one is the
return of investment but it also contributes to a more sustainable
energy system", says Frans Lindelöw, CEO Skandia.
