Swedish developer OX2 and Ikea investment arm Ingka have applied for a permit for the 3.1GW Neptunus offshore energy hub off the coast of Blekinge, Sweden.
The Neptunus hub is set to be made up of 207 wind turbines and connected to green hydrogen production in the Baltic Sea. The partners said construction could start on the offshore energy hub in 2030.
Emelie Zakrisson, head of offshore wind development in Sweden for OX2, said Neptunus would be one of the first of a “next generation” of offshore wind farms paired with green hydrogen production. OX2 and Ingka are developing six offshore wind farms in Sweden.
