Location: Skane
Operator: Vattenfall Wind
Configuration: 48 X 2.3-MW SWT2.3/93
Operation: 2007
WTG supplier: Siemens Wind
Quick facts: This is the first turbine at Lillgrund, which is in Öresund, offshore Malmö, on Sweden's south coast. The first phase is expected to supply about 300 GWh/yr. The turbines are a variable-speed version of the standard SWT2.3-82 machine, with a larger rotor for moderate wind speed sites. The order was placed in Feb 2006 and the Siemens scope includesdturbine delivery, electrical infrastructure, installation, and a 5yr service and maintenance agreement. Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution provided equipment for the project's 33kV and 138kV offshore transformer station.

Yttre Stengrund
Location: Kalmar
Operator: Vattenfall
Configuration: 5 X 2-MW NM72
Operation: 2001 (ret)
WTG supplier: Micon
Quick facts: This facility in Kalmarsound was one of the world's first offshore wind plants. After a series of gearbox issues, and facing a lack of spare parts, Vattenfall closed the plant in 2014. In Apr 2015, contractor Svensk Sjöentreprenad began preparations for dismantling the machines and removing the foundations to the seabed level. This work started in Nov 2015 and completed in Jan 2016. The power comapny also will remove cables and sell these with the turbines and towers for scrap. The job represented the first full decomissioning of an offshore wind plant.
