Abstract [en]

This thesis describes the processes of establishing wind farms in Sweden. The workcontains a thorough literature review regarding both the establishing process andproject management, including complex project theory. The main part consists of theexecution of 15 interviews with organizations involved in wind farm establishment.The result of these interviews laid the foundation for a process description identifyingdifferent steps and activities in these types of projects. The outcome was thencompiled in a project model, which includes five phases and four processes.

When analyzing the project of establishing wind farms from the theory of complexprojects one discovers that the amount of different requirements and stakeholdersnecessitates a systematical and dynamical project structure. Since projects are in needof different types of competences there are also many consultants and contractorsinvolved. It is therefore imperative to coordinate these stakeholders efficiently,adapted to the internal structure of the project owner. To be able to take advantageof external competence, both in execution and in the creation of an efficient projectstructure, is an important way of improving ones possibilities for successful wind farmestablishing. These improvements can take the form of savings in project spending’sdue to a more efficient execution of phase activities in the project model, includingbetter functions to terminate inadequate projects early. Improvements can also havethe positive effect of increasing the proportion of projects that are finalized.
