Vattenfall made the decision to decommission the project due to the high cost of replacing turbines and cables.
Yttre Stengrund used five 2MW NEG Micon turbines when it was commissioned in 2001. Vattenfall said only one of the turbines is currently operational.
Only 50 of the turbines were ever made so replacement parts are no longer available.
The Swedish utility have also decided against installing new turbines as the project's export cable would need replacing if it was to continue operating. Decommissioning has been deemed the most economical option.
"We have chosen to decommission this wind farm prematurely and restore the seabed and ground installations in an ecologically correct way," said Torbjorn Walhborg, head of Vattenfall's Nordic unit.
The company said decommissioning will take approximately one month and could start next summer, weather dependent.
The turbines, towers, blades and cables will be dismantled and sold or recycled. The monopile foundations are likely to be cut down to the seabed, which will be restored to its original condition.
According to WPO Intelligence, Vattenfall acquired the project from Dong Energy in 2006.
In 2002, one of the NEG Micon turbines had to be replaced following a fire caused by loose connections between the transformer's connection bars and the power cables from the generator circuit breaker.
