Eolus has signed an agreement with E.ON Elnät regarding grid connection for the wind farms Kråktorpet and Nylandsbergen in Sundsvall municipality. The agreement covers wind farms with 61 wind turbines with an installed capacity of 232 MW.

On December 23, 2017, Eolus announced, through a press release, a sales agreement with Aquila Capital regarding wind farms Kråktorpet and Nylandsbergen comprising 232 MW. Eolus have signed a turbine supply agreement with Vestas for both wind farms and a balance of plant contract with Veidekke which includes roads, crane pads, foundations, internal electrical grid and communication network.

Eolus now has signed an agreement with E.ON regarding grid connection for Kråktorpet and Nylandsbergen. The wind farms are expected to be commissioned during the second half of 2019.

Both Kråktorpet and Nylandsbergen are located close to wind farm Jenåsen which Eolus currently is constructing in Sundsvall municipality. Jenåsen comprises 23 wind turbines with an installed capacity of 79 MW. The investments made in the grid with, among other things, a new national grid substation in Nysäter to connect Jenåsen have been necessary to connect both Kråktorpet and Nylandsbergen to the grid.
