Announced on 3 July, the company said it is now the government’s turn to take a position on the Eystrasalt offshore wind project.

“We now hope the government prepares the matter carefully but quickly. There is no time to lose if we are to be able to meet the industry’s needs both in the short and longer term,” said Niclas Broman, CEO of Skyborn Sweden.

Skyborn Sweden has applied to build the offshore wind farm in the Bothnian Sea, approximately 60 kilometres from the municipality of Hudiksvall.

The permit application for Eystrasalt Offshore was submitted to the government in April 2023. The application concerns up to 256 wind turbines with a maximum total height of 370 metres.

The wind farm is expected to produce up to 15 TWh of electricity per year, corresponding to approximately ten per cent of the Swedish annual electricity production, said Skyborn Sweden.

According to the developer, the project is one of the largest offshore wind farms in Sweden that is currently awaiting final approval from the government.
