The Swedish government is moving ahead with offshore wind power
The Swedish government is moving ahead with plans for two offshore wind farms, a project called “Västvind” in the North Sea and a project called “Dyning” in the Baltic Sea.
The government has decided to give the county administrations in Västra Götaland and Östergötland the task of investigating the conditions for the parks. In addition, Sweden’s Geological Survey (SGU) will investigate the possibilities of laying underwater cables to the facilities. After the opinion of the county administrative boards, the government must make its decision.
“Västvind” is located outside Kungälv and Öckerö in Sweden’s economic zone and in the territorial sea. “Dyning” is planned to be built between the archipelago outside Östergötland and Gotland in Sweden’s economic zone.
SGU will also investigate a possible permit for cables for the “Galene” wind farm off the West Coast.
