Statkraft was responsible for the development and is the majority owner of Fosen Vind. The Grand Chamber of the Supreme Court unanimously ruled on 11 October 2021 that the rights of the reindeer herding Sami under Article 27 of the UN Convention on Civil and Political Rights (SP) had been violated. This means that the license and the expropriation decisions on the development of Storheia and Roan wind turbines were invalid.
