The Swedish Markbygden project has now been approved.

After a few modifications to the original plan, the project has now reached approval.

The third stage is the largest section of the project. The developer Swevind expects to add up to 442 wind turbines, amounting to 1,800 MW, to the northern Swedish onshore wind farm. The first section has space for 314 turbines at 917 MW, and the second may reach up to 440 turbines at 1,300 MW. The project will contain a total of 3,750 MW. The developer refers to the project as the 1,101 project, based on the intended number of turbines.
