Wind energy – Sweden
Sweden-based Zephyr Vind has announced plans to build a large-scale offshore wind farm in Sweden, which would use both floating and fixed-bottom foundations.
The company has proposed two preliminary project designs: one with 61 wind turbines with a 20+ MW capacity each, and one with 94 turbines with an output of 15 MW per unit.
The wind farm is expected to generate around 5.5 TWh of electricity per year, which corresponds to the annual electricity demand of about 1 million households.
The project, being a sizeable floating wind project as well, will really push the boundaries of offshore wind.
