BREMEN, Germany – The Swedish Land and Environment Court has granted Skyborn Renewables an environmental permit to construct the Storgrundet offshore wind farm.
This allows for the inclusion of up to 51 wind turbines with a combined capacity of aroumd 1 GW and generating 3–3.5 TWh of electricity annually.
The location is 15 km from the mainland in Gävle and Söderhamn municipalities, Gävleborg County.
Skyborn has further permits to secure to ensure first operations before the end of the 2020s, including the grid connection permit.
Produced power would satisfy around 70% of the current electricity demand in Gävleborg county, the company said.
Earlier this year, Skyborn submitted permit applications to the Swedish government for offshore wind projects in the Bothnian Sea, one for Eystrasalt Offshore and one for Fyrskeppet Offshore.
