Skyborn Renewables, a German renewable energy developer, has received an environmental permit from Sweden’s Land and Environment Court for its GW Storgrundet offshore wind project The permit allows the installation of 51 turbines that will produce 1 GW of clean energy. The facility will generate 3–3.5 TWh of electricity in a year.
Furthermore, approvals such as a grid connection permit before the end of the decade are needed by the company to start operations. The Storgrundet wind farm will be situated 15 km offshore in the Gävle and Söderhamn municipalities in Gävleborg county. Moreover, the power produced will meet 70 percent of the country’s current electricity needs.
In July 2023, Skyborn Renewables filed an application with the Swedish Government for the development of a 2.8 GW offshore wind farm. Called Fyrskeppet, the offshore wind farm was located north of Örskar in Uppsala County, about 50 km from the coast. The project was powered by a maximum of 187 wind turbines. The wind farm was expected to generate up to 11 terawatt-hours of clean energy.
