Photographer's Note

As the sun sets, the wind power turbine at the Trolleberg Manor - just outside Lund - continuous to produce electricity.

This is a privately owned wind turbine (a shared ownership) made by Enercon with an effect of 1500kW. It stands 67 meters high and the three-wing rotor has a diameter of 66 meters.

There are about 700 wind power units in Sweden - mostly in the southern parts along the coasts and at the island Gotland in the Baltic Sea - making us a small wind power country compared to our neighbors Denmark and Germany.

Production is only 0,6 TWh per year, out of a possible 25 TWh.

Some expansion is planned - mainly at sea - to reduce the need of nuclear power. Which together with the hydroelectric power, produced by the rivers in the northern parts of the country, are the main sources of energy today.

This is a break from the Scav Hunt, as I've been hunting a "mocking" bird. Well, it's a heron that escapes me... ;o)
