The carbon footprint of Vattenfall’s wind power has now been reduced to 13 grammes per kilowatt hour generated, compared to 15 grammes in 2016, and the reduction trend only continues. The new Swedish wind farm Blakliden Fäbodberget landed at a record low 8 g CO2/kWh. In this case, this is a 47 per cent reduction in emissions compared to six years ago. In addition, the difference from fossil-based electricity generation is huge.

Air Liquide has signed its largest long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to date in the Netherlands with Vattenfall, for 115 MW or around 500 GWh per year, of renewable electricity from the offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust Zuid. This PPA comes in addition to a 100 GWh-PPA with Air Liquide announced in March 2021, expanding the long-term partnership.

Vattenfall's Kriegers Flak wind farm was commissioned in the Danish Baltic Sea at the beginning of September. TÜV SÜD has accompanied the project on behalf of Vattenfall since 2018 and successfully completed the project certification. The certification was carried out in accordance with the Danish BEK 73.

Vattenfall and BASF have agreed the sale of 49.5% of Vattenfall’s offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) in the Netherlands. Once fully commissioned it will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world and also the first one ever to be built without subsidies for the power produced.

With an output of around ten megawatts, today’s wind turbines on the open sea have enormous dimensions. Their gigantic nacelles – with a generator, rotor and rotor blades spanning more than 100 meters – stand atop a steel tower.
