Development of Norwegian wind power could be about to take two large steps forward. Wind farm Tonstad of 200 MW faces a major investment decision, while an application has been submitted to Statnett for the reservation of 162 MW grid capacity from the projects Søngkjølen/Engerfjellet, reports Montel.

The Tonstad project has been under development for a long period of time and was granted final approval from authorities two years ago. The deadline for the reserved grid capacity will expire on Nov. 26 and the French energy company Engie, which is behind the project, expects to decide on the project's fate soon.
