PKN Orlen CEO Daniel Obajtek recently posted on social media that the 1.2 GW Baltic Power wind project offshore Poland has received its first building permit for the onshore portion.


Onshore development of the project is expected to begin in 2024, Obajtek said.

Construction of the Baltic Power offshore wind farm, located approximately 23 kilometres north of the Baltic Sea coastline, is scheduled to begin in 2024, followed by commercial operations in 2026.

For over 25 years, it will supply renewable energy to more than 1.5 million Polish households.

The project’s developers, PKN Orlen and Northland Power, selected Vestas as their preferred supplier. Vestas’ compatriot Cadeler will install 76 of Vestas’ 236-15.0 MW wind turbines.

The Baltic Power joint venture also announced preferred suppliers for all key onshore and offshore components of the farm, including foundations, wind turbines, substations, and cables.

The same month, Global Maritime secured a contract for a marine warranty package for the 1.2 GW Baltic Power offshore wind farm.
