Vattenfall has started dismantling the 10MW Yttre Stengrund offshore project, off the coast of south-east Sweden.

The 14-year old Swedish offshore project uses five 2MW NEG Micon turbines, although only one turbine was in operation when the decision to dismantle the project was taken in September 2014.

Swedish engineering firm Svensk Sjoentreprenad is carrying out the dismantling.

The limited availability of the NEG Micon turbines meant spare parts were hard to come by.

Vattenfall decided against installing new turbines as the project’s export cable would need replacing if it was to continue operating. Vattenfall deemed decommissioning to be the most economical option.

Swedish engineering firm Svensk Sjoentreprenad has been contracted to carry out the dismantling work, which is expected to be completed by 1 January 2016.
