Vinge has advised Bergvik Skog AB in conjunction with its execution of a co-operation agreement relating to Svartnäs wind farm with Vattenfall Vindkraft AB. The agreement entails that Vattenfall will take over the future project planning phase of the wind farm and Vattenfall has also been granted an exclusive right to acquire the project, which is based on a permit issued to Bergvik Skog AB in January 2014 to construct a total of 53 wind turbines at the Svartnäs wind farm. The investment in Svartnäs wind farm will be in the region of SEK 1-1.5 billion and the farm is estimated to become operational in 2017.

The European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
