The County Administrative Board of Halland has decided that the offshore wind farm Galatea-Galene can get permission to be built according to the law on Sweden’s economic zone.
 
The planned wind farm has an installed capacity of up to 1.7 GW. The Galatea-Galene wind farm is divided in to two areas. Galatea is 25 kilometers outside the city of Falkenberg and Galene is about 25 kilometers outside the city of Varberg.
 
In its decision the County Administrative Board writes that the government can give the wind farm permission to be built. The Swedish Armed Forces has declared they don’t have any objections to the northern part of the wind farm, the dialogue continues for the southern area.
 
With the approval of the Swedish government construction could start already 2026 without subsidies. Galatea-Galene is one of three projects that OX2 is developing together with Ingka Investments. The other two are Triton outside the coast of Skåne and Aurora between the islands Gotland and Öland. All three projects will be decided by the Swedish government and have together a potential to produce up to 38 TWh.
