STOCKHOLM, Dec. 26, 2012 (Press Release) -SCA is well on its way to becoming a major producer of renewable electricity. A number of wind turbines have already been installed, and another 350 or so will be erected by 2017.

On an elevated plateau in northern Sweden, white towers 377 feet (115 meters) high with rotors spanning a circle 370 feet (113 meters) in diameter rise above the forested horizon of the Stamåsen ridge northwest of Ramsele. Five wind turbines are in place so far, with another 21 still to be built.

Once all 26 turbines are completed in fall 2012, it is estimated that total electricity production at the Stamåsen wind park will meet the needs of close to 10,000 single-family houses. And that's just the beginning.
