In Sweden’s national climate policy framework, the government sets out its vision for a fossil-free Sweden and aims towards zero net emissions by 2045. Sweden’s electricity consumption is expected to increase sharply in the coming years, as a result of industry and transport being electrified and phasing out fossil fuels. The government has now decided on Sweden’s first marine plans with the increasing demand for offshore windpower.

Freja Offshore

Hexicon and Norwegian offshore developer Aker Offshore Wind have together joined forces and created the joint venture company Freja Offshore. Freja Offshore is developing three wind power projects in Sweden, two located in the Baltic Sea and one in Skagerrak. With government plans for expanding the electricity grid far offshore and ambitious net zero commitments, Freja Offshore is positioned to lead floating offshore wind opportunities in the Swedish market.
