The project would be located in the Norrhavet maritime area which has been specified in the Åland Maritime Spatial Plan as suitable for offshore wind power.

In total, the area comprises about 600 square kilometres divided into two project areas which, using existing turbine technology, would allow for a wind farm with a capacity of 2.1 GW and an annual output of 10 TWh.
