The End for Taggen Offshore Wind Project in Sweden

Vattenfall and co-owner Wallenstam decided to discontinue a further development of the Taggen offshore wind project located approx. 12 km outside Sölvesborg. The reason: military objections.

"Of course, it is regrettable that we are now forced to abandon a major renewable energy project that we have been developing with Wallenstam for over ten years. Now we have to focus on taking the lessons of Taggen and putting them into the next offshore project," says a disappointed Mattias Sjöberg, CEO of Taggen Vindpark AB.

In 2012, the Taggen offshore wind farm off the Swedish coast received the necessary building permits. The company recently wanted to make changes to the plans due to technical progress and the associated cost saving opportunities. Fewer but higher wind turbines were to be erected. When the new permit application was forwarded, the Swedish military reacted not only to the amendment but also to the project as such and vetoed it. The reason for this is the Ravlunda shooting range, which is about 25 km inland from the area where Taggen was to be built.

Taggen should have a capacity of 300 MW and consist of 83 turbines with a maximum height of 170 metres. This would have allowed 200,000 households to be supplied with green electricity. According to the new plans, the wind farm would have had the same capacity and energy production, but with a maximum of 40 turbines and a maximum height of 220 meters.
