The offshore wind farm is one of the eight in which Iberdrola took majority stakes after signing an agreement with Svea Vind Offshore in 2020.

Work on the two Gretas Klackar projects, also among the eight in which Iberdrola acquired an ownership stake, is also progressing. The 1.6 GW Gretas Klackar 1 is currently in the consultation phase for its environmental permit, while the 600 MW Gretas Klackar 2 is in the process of approval by the municipal authorities, pending the establishment of the date for the vote.
