Vattenfall, one of the leading players in the offshore wind industry, has several major wind projects in its portfolio. 

In Denmark, the company owns the 604 MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm, among others, which was officially opened in September 2021.

A few months ago, the company bought a majority stake in two offshore wind projects with a combined capacity of 2.8 GW located off the coast of Gothenburg, Sweden, from the wind power firm Zephyr.

In the UK, Vattenfall is developing the Aberdeen offshore wind farm and planning the construction of the Norfolk Zone wind farms that comprises Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas.

Vattenfall is also developing the 1.5 GW Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm in the Netherlands which is the first and largest offshore wind project in the world to be developed without subsidy.

In Germany, the company exercised its step-in-rights to develop a 980 MW offshore wind farm in the N-7.2 zone in the German North Sea.
