OX2 has applied for a Natura 2000 permit for an offshore wind farm within the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone off the coast of Falkenberg and Varberg.
The project is called Galatea-Galene and is divided into two areas. Galatea is located about 25 km outside Falkenberg and Galene about 25 km outside Varberg. The wind farm comprises up to 101 wind turbines, with a maximum height of 340 meters. The estimated electricity production from the wind farm amounts to approximately 6-7 TWh per year. OX2's permit application, which includes an environmental impact assessment, is handled by the County Administrative Board of Halland. The project is part of OX2's Swedish project development portfolio, which at the end of the second quarter amounted to 11.1 GW.
