From the date when the contract enters into force, the selected suppliers will provide advice, proposals, and recommendations on technological, technical, research, land-use planning, environmental, economic and financing, legal, project management, and other matters related to the development, design, construction, operation and connection of the wind farms and associated infrastructure to the transmission grid.

Applications for the tender can be sent until 16 December and the value of the contract is EUR 2,426,000 including VAT.

The duration of the service contract shall be twelve months from the date of the signing of the contract or until the full quantity of services has been purchased.

Lithuania is in the process of organizing a tender for the first 700 MW offshore wind farm which is scheduled to take place in the second half of 2023.

The 137.5-square-kilometre site in the Baltic Sea, which the Lithuanian Government identified two years ago, is located some 29 kilometres off the country’s coast, in a water depth of around 35 metres.

The project is expected to be operational in 2028.

In November, the Lithuanian Government announced plans to have a second, subsidy-free offshore wind farm up by 2028 as well.
