Føn Energy Services enters Swedish onshore wind market

Føn Energy Services, an O&M specialist for onshore and offshore wind, has opened up its first office and been awarded its first projects in Sweden. 

The company has appointed field technicians and set up an office and a workshop in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. It has also secured its first agreement to provide operational service and maintenance support on three undisclosed onshore wind farms located in central Sweden. 

Føn Energy Services will provide a wide range of services, including inspections, general day to day WTG service, maintenance, trouble shooting, and annual service campaigns. The workshop and the experienced WTG team enables Føn to provide a variety of services among others service and maintenance of Hailo and Avanti lift systems, and includes special tools for general overhaul of tractel hoist motors.  

Entering Sweden is in line with our strategy as it is both an offshore wind and onshore wind market. We have the expertise and capabilities to support both segments. Further, we believe there is an opening in Sweden for a truly industrial O&M player that has the scale and capability to deliver a broad range of services.

Head of onshore wind at Føn Energy Services.

Føn Energy Services was established in 2022, backed by Oslo-listed industrial investment company Akastor, which has the industry powerhouse Aker group as its largest shareholder, and Norwegian industrial group IKM. The company has an ambition of industrializing and digitizing the O&M segment of the wind industry in order to increase efficiency and reduce cost of operations. 

The O&M segment within onshore and offshore wind accounts for a significant part of the cost throughout the project lifecycle, yet it is probably the least industrialised part of the value chain. That is something we are aiming to change, and we hope to collaborate with Swedish consortiums and developers during both the development and operations phases to realise such cost and efficiency gains.

Føn Energy Services is headquartered in Norway, with operations in both Norway and Sweden.
