⚡ Defense rejects six offshore wind projects
The Swedish Defense Force is rejecting or lodging strong objections to six out of the eight offshore wind projects that are still awaiting government approval. This was reported by Dagens Nyheter , which has obtained the agency's opinion statements on all wind power projects that have come before the government.
Last week, the government gave the green light to two offshore wind parks off the coast of Halland. The Defense Force had objected to the largest of the projects, citing possible "significant harm" to Sweden's military interests.
The Defense Force does not provide details when it objects to wind power due to confidentiality. However, difficult decisions lie ahead since Russia's aggressive actions have changed the security policy landscape in the Baltic Sea, according to DN.
