1.2 GW Baltic Power Offshore Wind Farm Moves Forward
The 1.2 GW Baltic Power wind project offshore Poland has received its first building permit for the onshore part of the development, according to a recent social media post by Daniel Obajtek, CEO of PKN Orlen.
The work on the project’s onshore development is planned to start in 2024, Obajtek said.
The Baltic Power offshore wind farm, which will be built approximately 23 kilometres north of the Baltic Sea coastline, in the vicinity of Choczewo and Łeba, is scheduled to enter into construction in 2024 and commercial operations in 2026.
It will supply more than 1.5 million Polish households with renewable energy annually for over 25 years.
The wind farm’s developers PKN Orlen and Northland Power selected Vestas as the preferred supplier. The company will provide 76 of its 236-15.0 MW wind turbines for the project that will be installed by Vestas’ compatriot Cadeler.
In September 2022, the Baltic Power joint venture also announced preferred suppliers of all key onshore and offshore components of the farm: foundations, wind turbines, substations, and cables.
That same month, Global Maritime secured a contract for a complete marine warranty package for the 1.2 GW Baltic Power offshore wind farm.
