Vattenfall gets government nod for Swedish offshore wind

The Swedish Government has granted a construction permit to Vattenfall, for the 640MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm. 

The developer plans to install 40-50 turbines at a site in the Baltic Sea, 30km south of Trelleborg. 

Further permits and a grid connection agreement must also be secured.

Vattenfall is planning for a possible investment decision in 2025. 

The wind farm could be commissioned around 2028.
