Lista Wind Farm is the first wind farm project FOR has constructed in Norway. It consists of 31Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbine generators (WTG) with a hub height of 80m and a rotor diameter of 93 meter.The sites total name plate capacity is 71.3 MW.
The wind farm is located in the hills north of the Lista peninsula, five kilometres from Vanse, which is the nearest village. Power is delivered to the local 110kV grid, which passes through the wind farm area. The local grid is owned by Agder Energi Nett.

The turbines will be maintained under a contract with Siemens. Each turbine is monitored 24 hours a day seven days a week and any maintenance are carried out by specially trained and qualified technicians.
