OX2’s offshore wind farm Triton off the southern coast of Sweden has received a Natura 2000 permit. In June the County Administrative Board finalised their handling by suggesting the government to grant Triton a permit according to the Act on Sweden's Exclusive Economic Zone.
If the government gives the final approval construction could start by 2027 and production start before 2030. The Triton wind farm will be situated 23 kilometers off the coast of Skåne and has an installed capacity of up to 1.5 GW. The annual electricity generation is estimated to about 7 TWh. Triton is one of three projects that OX2 is developing together with Ingka Investments in Sweden. The other two are Galene on the west coast, which recently was approved by the government, and Aurora between the islands Gotland and Öland and is currently prepared by the Gotland County Administrative Board.
