Baltic Power has selected the main contractor for its offshore wind farm service base
Baltic Power has selected the main contractor for the Orlen Group and Northland Power offshore wind farm service base. Its construction will start later this year and will end in 2025. As of 2026, the base will provide service of 76 offshore wind turbines. The amount of energy they generate will be equivalent to the electricity consumption of more than 1.5 million households.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Baltic Power offshore wind farm is an essential element of transformation of the ORLEN Group and a milestone in the development of the Polish power sector. As soon as in 2024, we will start the construction of an up to 1.2 GW offshore wind farm, expected to ultimately supply clean electricity to more than 1 ,5 million households in Poland.
FOR THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES
Offshore wind power generation is an opportunity for a civilization change and transformation of the Polish economy. It can also provide a growth stimulus for the regions where clean, green technologies will be implemented. Experts estimate that in 2030 over 30% of energy generated in Poland will come from renewable sources, mainly offshore wind farms. Their potential based on the permits issued for the construction of future offshore wind farms is about 16 GW. According to estimates by industry organizations, the total potential of the Polish part of the Baltic Sea may be as high as 33 GW.
