Freja Offshore, a joint venture between Mainstream Renewable Power and Hexicon, has taken a significant step forward in expanding sustainable energy solutions by submitting a planning application for the Dyning floating offshore wind farm.
The proposed project, boasting a potential capacity of up to 2.5 GW, is situated in the Baltic Sea, within Sweden’s economic zone, approximately 45 kilometers southeast of Oxelösund.
Dyning is set to become a renewable energy powerhouse, with the capability to generate up to 10 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity annually. This astounding figure exceeds the combined electricity consumption of the entire Sormland and Ostergotland regions. The demand for electricity in these regions is expected to surge in the coming two decades, notably driven by the electrification of the industrial sector.
Freja Offshore envisions that Dyning will play a pivotal role in stabilizing and potentially reducing electricity prices for both households and businesses in the area. Furthermore, its offshore location ensures minimal to no visibility from the mainland, preserving the aesthetic and cultural significance of the archipelago environments in the vicinity.
The planning application for the construction and operation of the Dyning offshore wind farm has been officially submitted to the Ministry of Climate and Economic Affairs, following the regulations set by the law governing Sweden’s economic zone and the establishment of the internal cable network under the Swedish Continental Shelf Act.
