1,050 offshore turbines in giant Swedish park

Sweden will by far exceed Denmark concerning the capacity of offshore wind turbines. A new major park with 700 turbines and an overall capacity of 2,500 MW off Karlshamn in Blekinge is planned, the Danish engineering media Ingeniøren reports.

Sweden will produce a lot of energy through offshore wind turbines in the years to come. Plans of a major offshore wind park with a capacity of 2,500 MW off Blekinge have been approved by a Swedish environmental court, Ingeniøren reports.

With its 2,500 MW in the shape of 700 turbines, the park will be much bigger than the largest Danish offshore wind park at Anholt which is to have a total capacity of 400 MW. The park will consist of two separate parks of 350 and 700 turbines respectively. These parks demand investments of USD 3.6 billion and USD 7.1 billion respectively which will begin in 2014-2015 if the project is approved by the Swedish Government.
