Vattenfall to scrap Yttre Stengrund  

Credit:  reNews | 18/09/2014 | renews.biz ~~

Vattenfall has abandoned plans to repower its 10MW Yttre Stengrund offshore wind farm in the Kalmar Sound, Sweden.

The company told local media in its home country that it is planning to decommission the project, which was brought online in 2001 and features NEG Micon 2MW turbines.

Permission was granted in 2009 ago to repower the wind farm but as of last year the company was describing the erection of updated turbines as only one of “several solutions”.

Only one of the five turbines is currently in operation. Difficulty finding spare parts was a long-running problem at the wind farm.

Vattenfall inherited Yttre Stengrund in 2006 as part of a wide-ranging deal with Dong Energy.

The project was developed by Vindkompaniet and built in waters up to 10 metres deep. The original capital cost was understood to be around €13m.
