Ørsted has secured a permit for its 1.5-gigawatt Skane offshore wind project in Sweden, according to Renewables Now.
The permit was granted by the county administrative board of Sweden’s southern county of Skane, which recommended the government approve the wind farm in December 2022. If Ørsted receives a green light from the government, the wind farm could begin providing power as early as 2029.
The project is located in the vicinity of the Natura 2000 area of southwest Skane's ocean waters.
Ørsted has 7.6 gigawatts of installed offshore wind, as well as an additional 11.8 gigawatts either under construction or awarded, according to the company’s website.
