Description of the project

The Baltica 2 Wind Farm is one of the projects that are being currently implemented by the PGE Capital Group under its Offshore Program. The final objective is to erect, in Poland’s Baltic Sea Exclusive Economic Zone, offshore wind farms with the total installed capacity of up to 6.5 GW.

The Baltica 2 Wind Farm will be operational by 2030 and its installed capacity will equal up to 1 498 MW. The farm will occupy the area of approximately 190 km 2.

Wind turbines comprising the Baltica 2 Wind Farm will be installed between the towns of Ustka and Łeba, approximately 40 kilometers from the shore line. The farm will be located at a considerable distance from the protected area of Ławica Słupska. On shore, the farm will be connected to the planned Choczewo substation located in the Pomorskie voivodeship, distributing electricity generated by Baltica 2 and Baltica 3 wind farms to end-users throughout Poland.

Status of the project

  • In December 2020 the company named Elektrownia Wiatrowa Baltica 2 concluded, with Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne, an agreement to connect the Baltica 2 Offshore Wind Farm with the installed capacity of 1 498 MW to Poland’s transmission network.
  • In January 2020 the Regional Environmental Protection Director in Gdańsk issued a decision specifying the environmental conditions for Baltica 2 and Baltica 3 wind farms with the total capacity of up to 2.5 GW.
  • In April 2012 a decision specifying the farm’s location (the so-called permit to build artificial islands) was issued.
