Twelve specialised vessels are beginning the main phase of geotechnical surveys of the Baltic Sea bottom in the area of the planned wind farm and along the connection route. Completion of the tests is scheduled for later this year. The results will provide a basis for the development of a detailed plan of locations of the foundations for the turbines and offshore substations and their connection to the onshore transmission infrastructure.

The Energy Regulatory Office has granted support for the Baltic Power project in the form of a 25-year Contract for Difference (CfD). Under the CfD, the project owner will receive payments covering any negative balance of electricity generated offshore and fed into the grid, which means that the project will be compensated for the potential difference between the market price of electricity and the strike price of the CfD.

After fulfilment of the conditions precedent - including obtaining merger clearance - stipulated in the joint venture agreement signed in January 2021, NP Baltic Wind B.V. a subsidiary of Northland Power has subscribed for the shares in Baltic Power. The joint venture agreement provides for joint development and operation of the Baltic Power offshore wind farm, whose construction is scheduled for launch in 2023.
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 even a 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 in the Polish zone of the Baltic Sea is estimated at 11 GW.
We are looking for suppliers
