Vattenfall welcomes the Swedish Government’s decision to grant construction permit of an offshore wind farm at Swedish Kriegers Flak. Kriegers Flak in the south of the Baltic sea is the one of Vattenfall’s Swedish offshore wind projects that has come the furthest in its development. Vattenfall’s application covers 40 to 50 wind turbines with a total capacity of approximately 640 MW. Annual production would be sufficient to charge one million electric cars per year or to meet the annual needs of just over a half a million households.With the permit from the Government, the project is now taking an important step forward. However, the major challenges of securing necessary permits as well as the electricity grid connection on land, are prerequisites for completing the wind farm. Vattenfall is planning for a possible investment decision in 2025.Swedish Kriegers FlakKriegers Flak is located 30 km south of Trelleborg, Sweden.The wind farm can be commissioned around 2028, if everything goes according to plan.Vattenfall’s application pertains 40–50 wind turbines with a maximum height of 280 meters.The wind farms total capacity would be 640 MW with an annual production of around 2.6 TWh.On the Danish side of Kriegers Flak, Vattenfall has already commissioned Denmark's largest wind farm. On the German side there has been a wind farm in operation since 2015.
