1.5 GW Swedish Offshore Wind Farm Homeports in Ystad

OX2 and Ingka Investments have signed a Letter of Intent with Ystad Port to build an operations and maintenance base that will serve the Triton offshore wind farm in Sweden.


Under the agreement, the parties will investigate the possibilities of constructing offices and storage buildings as well as access to the quay and equipment in the port for the future operation of the up to 1.5 GW offshore wind farm.

“We look forward to contributing to the development of the port of Ystad and creating offices, warehouses and operational offices. The port will play a central role in building and then operating Triton, which will be operations of Triton, which will bring a significant amount of cost-effective and renewable renewable electricity to southern Sweden,” said Lise Toll, Project Director of the Triton offshore wind farm.

The offshore wind project is planned to be situated 23 kilometers off the coast of Skåne and has an installed capacity of up to 1.5 GW.

Recently, the County Administrative Board of Skåne gave Triton permission to be built in accordance with a regulation concerning Sweden’s exclusive economic zone.

If the government gives final approval, the construction of the project could start in 2027.

The Triton offshore wind farm comprises 129 wind turbines, with a maximum height of 370 metres. The planned production of electricity from the project amounts to approximately 7 TWh per year, which is equivalent to about half of Skåne’s annual electricity consumption, according to its developers.

OX2 is developing three offshore wind farms in Sweden together with Ingka Investments: Galene on the west coast, Triton, in the south of Sweden, and Aurora, between the islands Gotland and Öland.

The final approval of the projects is made by the Government of Sweden and the projects have the potential to produce more than 30 TWh of electricity, said the developers.
