Sweden has a long coastline and high energy needs from industry, making it an attractive market for offshore wind development. The country has committed to fossil free energy production by 2045.
Mainstream has established a 50-50 joint venture with our partner Hexicon, named Freja Offshore, to explore four sites for floating and fixed bottom offshore wind.
