  • Vattenfall wins tender Hollandse Kust Zuid

    2018-03-19 | Press release

    Today it was announced that Vattenfall is awarded the permit for the Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind farm. In December, Vattenfall submitted a bid for this first non-subsidised wind farm in the Netherlands. Vattenfall plans to continue developing the wind farm of 700 – 750 MW which could produce renewable electricity for 1 to 1.5 million homes.

  • The SEK 2 billion cost-saving programme previously announced by Vattenfall is now entering its next phase. A necessary measure to achieve the goal is a reduction in the number of employees and consultants in the staff functions. The total number affected is approximately 1500 full time positions.

  • Frank van Doorn has been appointed head of Vattenfall's trading unit with immediate effect.

  • Vattenfall is now taking a further step into the European wind energy market by forming an alliance for the bid preparation in an offshore wind tender in Dunkerque, France.

  • Vattenfall plans to invest SEK 1 billion (EUR 100 million) in large-scale solar energy generation over the next two years. In addition, Vattenfall also provides small-scale solar solutions for customers. The investments support Vattenfall's objective to become fossil-free within a generation.

  • Bilprovningen, a Swedish Motor Vehicle Inspection Company, is first among vehicle inspection companies to offer public charging at its sites. In choosing the charging solution from Vattenfall, Bilprovningen's inspection stations will be connected to InCharge, giving customers access to an extensive charging network.

  • In 2017, Vattenfall’s nuclear power plants at Forsmark and Ringhals accounted for a third of Swedish electricity production. With an output of 52 billion kWh from these two power plants, 2017 was the third best year since the first reactor began operations 42 years ago.
