Baltica 2 with construction permits for the offshore part – the project already has all the permissions

The Pomeranian Voivode issued permits for the construction of the offshore part of the Baltica 2 wind farm project which is developed by PGE and Ørsted. They refer to the construction of wind turbines as well as the offshore substations. These are the last permits necessary before starting construction.

Both construction permits issued by the Pomeranian Voivode concern a project officially named the "Offshore wind farm complex with a maximum total capacity of 1,500 MW along with technical infrastructure related to the preparatory, implementation and operational stages (Offshore Wind Farm Baltica 2).” The permits obtained cover the construction of four offshore substations and the construction of 107 offshore wind turbines along with a power and telecommunications network.

The construction design and application for building permits were developed by a consortium by Ramboll and the design office Projmors from Gdansk. Currently, these companies are working on preparing a technical project.

PGE and Ørsted have already contracted all the necessary components for the Baltica 2 offshore wind farm, as well as signed contracts for the installation of foundations, turbines and cables. The partners also selected the general contractor for the onshore connection infrastructure. The last step awaiting the investors before the construction begins will be the final investment decision (FID).

Baltica 2 is one of two stages - next to Baltica 3 - of the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm. PGE and Ørsted plan to complete the construction of the Baltica 2 stage with a capacity of approximately 1.5 GW by the end of 2027, and the Baltica 3 stage with a capacity of approximately 1 GW by 2030. Baltica 2 and Baltica 3 together will create the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm with a total capacity of 2.5 GW, which will significantly contribute to the transformation of the Polish energy sector, providing green energy to almost 4 million households in Poland.

About the PGE Group

PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna is the largest electric power company and supplier of electricity and heat in Poland. By combining its fuel and power generation resources and having distribution networks, PGE guarantees safe and stable supply of electricity and heat to over 5.6 million customers. The PGE Group’s generating units produce over 40 percent of electricity in Poland. With 7 percent of installed wind farm capacity in Poland the PGE Group is the country’s largest renewable electricity company. The plan for the coming years is to continue developing renewable energy sources – especially based on wind and sun energy, as well as investments in energy storage, construction of a nuclear power plant, upgrade of energy distribution grid and decarbonizing heat generation segment. The PGE Group’s investment plan covers the country’s largest investment in offshore wind power plants. The PGE Group’s Offshore Program includes development of the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm, which runs in two stages – Baltica 2 and Baltica 3, with a total installed capacity of up to 2.5 GW by 2030. Then, after 2030, Baltica 1 project will join the Group’s portfolio. Thanks to new seabed areas acquired in the Baltic Sea the PGE Group will be able to develop further offshore wind projects by 2040. Including currently developed projects it will allow for achieving over 7 GW total capacity installed in the offshore wind. This makes PGE Group the biggest investor in Poland’s offshore wind in terms of capacities planned for development.
