Norway's Sunnmøre city court has ruled in favor of wind developer Haram Kraft A/S, which has now confirmed its legal right to continue developing a wind farm on the country's Haramsøya island, reports domestic media E24.

The wind farm's local opponents, Nei til vindkraftværk på Haramsøya [No to wind energy on Haramsøya, -ed.] failed to receive the court's support for stopping development of the wind facility and are thereby ordered to pay legal expenses totaling NOK 950,000 (EUR 88,924.75).
