Procurement News Notice

PNN 68481
Work Detail The County Administrative Board of Gotland is recommending that the government, according to the Act on Sweden’s exclusive economic zone, grant permission for the Aurora offshore wind farm developed by OX2 and Ingka Investments to move forward. If the government does give its approval, the project’s first phase is projected to be operational by 2030, delivering 6 TWh annually. The entire wind farm is expected to be developed by 2035 and deliver 24 TWh annually. Aurora is located about 22 kilometers south of the island of Gotland. “Aurora can act as an accelerator in the transition to net zero emissions in southern Sweden,” says Emelie Zakrisson, head of offshore wind development in Sweden, OX2. “The large-scale production of electricity will enable a substantial production of hydrogen and e-fuel, which is the prerequisite for fossil-free industry, shipping and aviation. We are working in parallel to secure the connections to the electricity grid as well as signing supplier agreements to be able to start construction as soon as all permits are in place.” Last month, the County Administrative Board granted Aurora a Natura 2000-permit.
