The Swedish environment court has approved plans for a 42 MW offshore wind farm off Näsudden. The project is being developed by Vindkompaniet, an affiliate of Danish wind turbine manufacturer NEG Micon, together with American developer SeaWest (Windpower Monthly, May 2000). Earlier this year, nearly 50 owners of beach property on Gotland demanded compensation payments, claiming the appearance of the wind farm at sea would decrease the value of their properties. The court said the claims for compensation do not have any legal ground. The proposal has been forwarded to the government for final approval.
