Vattenfall gets OK from Sweden for 640-megawatt offshore wind farm

May 20, 2022

Power Technology:

Swedish power company Vattenfall has secured permission from the Swedish government to build Kriegers Flak, an offshore wind farm with approximately 640MW of capacity.

Located in the south of the Baltic sea, the Kriegers Flak facility will be equipped with 40 to 50 wind turbines and generate around 2.6TWh of green electricity a year.

The offshore wind farm will generate enough clean energy to power more than half a million households.

Vattenfall president and CEO Anna Borg said: “We are happy that the government has made this decision.

“If Sweden is to be able to meet customers’ future electricity needs, it is absolutely necessary to expand fossil-free electricity production.

“Kriegers Flak would be a very valuable addition of electricity production in southern Sweden.”
