The permit allows for a maximum of 51 wind turbines, which when fully operational, will have a capacity of about 1 GW.

The project area is in Gävleborg county, situated approximately 15 kilometers from the mainland in Gävle and Söderhamn municipalities.

Once completed, the offshore wind farm will generate 3-3.5 TWh of electricity annually. The electricity production from the project will equal about 70 per cent of the current electricity demand in the Gävleborg county.

The project is planned to be operational before the end of the decade.

“We welcome the Court’s decision, which constitutes a central milestone for Storgrundet Offshore and brings us closer to realizing this long-planned project. We will now focus on securing the remaining permits,” said Hanna Magnusson, Interim Managing Director of Skyborn Sweden.
