Skåne County Greenlights OX2 1.5 GW Offshore Wind Farm

The County Administrative Board of Skåne has awarded the Triton offshore wind farm permission to be built in accordance with a regulation concerning Sweden’s exclusive economic zone.

The wind farms’ developers, OX2 and Ingka Investments, welcomed the decision, and if the government gives final approval, the construction of the project could start in 2027.

Last year, OX2 applied for a concession to connect Triton to the national grid.

The wind farm is planned to be situated 23 kilometres off the coast of Skåne and has an installed capacity of up to 1.5 GW. The annual electricity generation is estimated to be about 7 TWh, which corresponds to about half of the electricity consumption in Skåne, according to the developers.

“We look forward to realizing this project and to continue to cooperate with local stakeholders. We are working in parallel to secure cable connection to the grid as well as signing agreements with suppliers to be able to start as soon as all permits are in place,” said Emelie Zakrisson, Head of Offshore Wind Development, Sweden OX2.

During the year, public consultations have been held concerning the grid connection, OX2 said. The company also signed agreements with cable supplier NKT and with EEW SPC for the supply of monopile foundations.
