OX2 has applied for a Natura 2000-permit for an offshore wind farm within the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone off the coast of Skåne.

The wind farm is called Triton and is located about 30 km south of Ystad. The offshore wind farm comprises up to 129 turbines with a maximum height of 370 meters.

OX2's permit application, which includes an environmental impact assessment, EIA, is handled by the County Administrative Board of Skåne.

The capacity of the wind farm is about 1 800 MW, and the estimated electricity production amounts to approximately 7.5 TWh per year, which corresponds to the production from a nuclear power reactor or an annual household electricity consumption of 1.5 million households. The project corresponds to reduced carbon dioxide emissions of approximately 4.5 million tonnes per year.

“This is the third application we have submitted in a short time regarding offshore wind power. The Triton wind farm would add renewable electricity to southern Sweden and ensure continued secured energy supply to the region and also contribute to achieving Sweden’s environmental goals”, says Hillevi Priscar, Country Manager OX2 Sweden.

The project is part of OX2's Swedish project development portfolio, which at the end of the third quarter amounted to 11.3 GW.

OX2 has previously applied for a Natura 2000 permit for the Galatea-Galene wind farm off the coast of Halland, as well as a permit to establish the wind farm under the Act on Sweden's Exclusive Economic Zone.
