OX2 has submitted a permit application under the act of Sweden’s Exclusive Economic Zone to construct an offshore wind farm in the Swedish Economic Zone off the coast of Skåne in the south of Sweden.
The wind farm Triton that will be situated about 30 kilometer south of Ystad, will comprise of up to 129 turbines with a maximal height of 370 meter. The total installed capacity will be about 1,800 MW and the production will be about 7.5 TWh per year, which corresponds to the electricity production of one nuclear reactor or the electricity consumption of 1.5 million households. The project will contribute with a reduction in CO2 emissions by 4.5 million tons a year.
– I am very happy that we are taking the next step in the development of Triton. The wind farm will be constructed on bottom fixed construction which is a well proven technology. This will keep time of construction short. Once completed the wind farm will contribute with additional electricity in the south of Sweden and contribute to Sweden reaching its ambitious climate targets, says Hillevi Priscar, Country Manager, OX2.
OX2 has previously applied for Natura 2000 and a permit under the act of Sweden’s Exclusive Economic Zone for the offshore wind farm Galatea-Galene on the west coast of Sweden.
OX2 develops and sells wind farms and solar parks. Since being founded in 2004, OX2 has taken a leading position in the area of large-scale onshore wind power, having developed and sold around 2.5 GW in Sweden, Finland, Norway and Poland and to customers such as Allianz, Ardian and IKEA. During the period 2014-2020, OX2 established more onshore wind power in Europe than any other developer. By constantly increasing the availability of renewable energy, OX2 is driving the transition to a more sustainable future. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, OX2 runs operations in Sweden, Finland, France, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, and Spain.
