    Skyborn gets enviro nod for 1-GW Swedish offshore wind farm

    September 14, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 14 (Renewables Now) - German developer Skyborn Renewables said on Thursday it has secured environmental permit for its roughly 1-GW Storgrundet offshore wind project in a key milestone for the long-planned development.

      The permit, granted by the Swedish Land and Environment Court, allows for the installation of up to 51 wind turbines, expected to be able to generate 3 TWh–3.5 TWh of electricity a year. Commercial operation is targeted by the end of the decade.

      Skyborn said it will now focus on securing the remaining permits, including the grid connection permit.

      The Storgrundet project is located about 15 km (9.3 miles) off the coast of Gavle and Soderhamn municipalities, Gavleborg County.

      Skyborn says its Swedish development portfolio has the potential to produce 40 TWh annually. Earlier in 2023, the company submitted permit applications to the Swedish government for the Eystrasalt and Fyrskeppet offshore wind projects, of 3.9 GW and 2.8 GW, respectively.

      In May, a collaboration involving Swiss technology group ABB Ltd, France’s Lhyfe SA and Skyborn was unveiled to work on a large-scale hydrogen project in Sweden.
