Kriegers Flak is located 30 km south of Trelleborg, Sweden, in the Baltic Sea, near the point where Danish, German and Swedish waters meet. It is one of Vattenfall's Swedish offshore wind projects that is furthest along in its development. According to current plans, the wind farm could be operational in 2028.

Vattenfall's application includes 40 to 50 wind turbines with a total capacity of about 640 MW and a maximum height of 280 meters. The annual production would be enough to charge one million electric cars per year or meet the annual demand of just over half a million households.

On the Danish side of Kriegers Flak, Vattenfall has already commissioned Denmark's largest wind farm. On the German side, a wind farm has already been in operation since 2015.

“We are happy that the Government has made this decision. If Sweden is to be able to meet customers' future electricity needs, it is absolutely necessary to expand fossil free electricity production. Kriegers Flak would be a very valuable addition of electricity production in southern Sweden”, says Anna Borg, President and CEO of Vattenfall.

“Wind power, together with other fossil free energy sources, is crucial in the transformation of society that is required to meet the climate challenge and enable fossil free living within one generation. Vattenfall's hope is that Kriegers Flak will be connected to the Swedish national grid as quickly as possible. However, before the wind farm can be completed,  all necessary permits have to be secured and an agreement with the Swedish TSO on how connection to the grid on land needs to be reached”, says Helene Biström, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Wind at Vattenfall.

Vattenfall plans a possible investment decision in 2025.
