County Board Recommends Mareld Floating Offshore Wind Farm Approval


The County Administrative Board of Västra Götaland has proposed that the Sweden government approve Freja Offshore‘s application to build the 2.5 GW Mareld floating offshore wind farm, subject to certain adaptations.

The government had tasked the County Administrative Board with preparing the applicationthat was submitted by Freja Offshore, a joint venture between Mainstream Renewable Power and Swedish company Hexicon. 

During the process, the board recommended Freja adjust the wind farm area size.

“The Mareld project has adjusted the wind farm to be able to coexist with other important societal interests and we are ready to continue to adapt to ensure that the whole is as good as possible,” says Carl Dandanell, CEO of Freja Offshore. 

“The entire team now look forward to the government issuing their final decision so the project can move forward without delay.”
