Ørsted plans to use the Achilles Utilities NCE qualification system for procurement and expects to commence the tender in May/June 2023.

Suppliers may apply for qualification at any time. To apply, the suppliers must complete an order form and pay in advance an annual qualification fee ranging from EUR 220 to EUR 985.

In addition, the developer issued a separate call for competition for the landfall horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and associated works.

Ørsted will use the UNCE qualification system for procurement and expects to launch the tender via said qualification system as early as week 27 of 2023 (from 3 July until 9 July).

The scope consists of all activities necessary to complete the construction of four HDDs for the Baltica 2 offshore wind farm.

The Baltica offshore wind farm, with a capacity of up to 2.5 GW, will be developed in two stages, namely Baltica 2 and Baltica 3.

Baltica 2 is slated for commissioning in 2027, and the closing of financing for this investment is planned for next year.

A few weeks ago, PGE and Ørsted chose Siemens Gamesa’s 14 MW wind turbines to be installed on top of the foundations.
