SWEDEN - It was a surprising turn for the initiative to build the Utposten 1 wind farm off Gävle's coast, Svea Vind Offshore withdrew its application.
Since the matter cannot be dealt with by Gävle City Council today, it will be a no.
In an email to the Gävle City Council, Maria Brolin wrote this about the Svea Vind Offshore: "Regarding Windpark Utposten, we at Svea Vind Offshore have withdrawn the application for the Wind Park Utposten and will adjust it since the application concerns 26 wind turbines and not 40 wind turbines. The Court has confirmed the receipt. Therefore, the application does not remain with the court. "
With V, SD, M and KD of the council in agreement, the municipality will excercise its veto power on Monday thereby halting futher investigation of the Land and Environmental Court on building the Utposten 1 wind farm outside the Norrsundet.
But the matter became final before Monday's municipal council when the company withdrew its application for Utposten 1 to the Land and Environmental Court.
SVT News sought comment from representatives of Svea Vind but with no results.
