1.6GW! Two Swedish offshore wind projects approved
- The Galatea-Galene offshore wind project, developed by OX2 and Ingka Investments, plans to install up to 101 turbines
- The Kattegatt Syd Offshore Wind Farm is located in Kattegat, off the coast of County Halland, and consists of 80 turbines with an estimated annual power generation of approximately 4.7 TWh
All countries in the world are seeking to accelerate energy transformation, and offshore wind power is moving forward at a high speed! Recently, Vattenfall's Kattegat Syd offshore wind farm and OX2's Galatea-Galene offshore wind farm in the Galene area have been approved by the Swedish government.
The Galatea-Galene offshore wind power project is located about 25 kilometers from the coast of Halland. It is developed by OX2 and Ingka Investments. It has a total installed capacity of 1.7 GW and plans to install up to 101 wind turbines. It is a "zero subsidy" offshore wind farm.
The project is divided into two areas: the Galatea site is located 25 kilometers away from the city of Falkenberg, with an installed capacity of 400 MW and 21 wind turbines to be installed. The Galene site is located in waters approximately 25 kilometers from the city of Varberg.
OX2 previously submitted a license application and a Natura 2000 application for the Galatea-Galene Offshore Wind Farm to the Halland County Executive Board. In January 2023, the project received approval from the Halland County Executive Board to allow construction.
The Kattegatt Syd (Kattegat South) offshore wind farm, developed by Vattenfall, is located in Kattegat, off the coast of County Halland, 25 kilometers from Falkenberg. The project has an installed capacity of 1.2 GW and consists of 80 wind turbines. It is estimated that the annual power generation will be about 4.7 TWh, which is equivalent to 2.5%-3% of Sweden's current total power generation. Vattenfall submitted a permit application to the Halland County Executive Board in 2021 and was granted a permit in October 2022. Editor/Xu Shengpeng
