Investor Baltic Power, implementing a joint project of offshore wind farm construction between PKN ORLEN and Northland Power, invites to pre-qualify for tenders for services and equipment used in the construction of an offshore wind farm in Poland. First, prequalifications will be conducted and then the interested entities will be invited to the planned tenders.

Baltic Power is looking to supply services and equipment used in the construction of an offshore wind farm. Services will be provided during the offshore wind farm construction period scheduled for 2024 -2026. The Baltic Power offshore wind farm, jointly implemented by the Polish energy company Grupa Orlen and the Canadian investor Northland Power, is currently one of the most dynamically developing projects of its kind in the Baltic Sea. In an area located approx. 22 km from the shore at the level of Łeba and Choczew, about 70 turbines are to be built. The Baltic Power wind farm, with an installed capacity of up to 1,200 MW, will ultimately be able to provide clean energy to up to one million households per year for more than 25 years.

Service and equipment supplies cover several scopes. These are aids to navigation (AtoN), including rental or purchase of equipment and deployment, recovery, and maintenance. Further scopes include weather buoys (equipment rental, deployment, retrieval and maintenance), watch ship (GV compliant with wind industry standards), crew carrier vessel (CTV compliant with wind industry standards), vessel audits (I.M.C.A. accredited, experienced HSE inspectors), personal protective equipment (survival kit, life jacket, personal location beacon (PLB), altitude equipment), weather forecasting services.

Baltic Power will also be looking for onshore and offshore customer representatives (foundations, subsea cables, wind turbines), and offshore technicians (maintenance of offshore equipment during construction phase).

One of the scopes concerns temporary office facilities (office, conference room, canteen, restroom, shower, locker room, drying room, storage with air conditioning).

Detailed information on prequalification can be found on the Baltic Power website.

The developer announces that entities that demonstrate their experience in providing services and equipment supplies for offshore or onshore EPCI construction projects will be invited to participate in the bidding processes.

Confirmation of bidders’ interest, a statement of compliance with the general conditions set forth above, or additional questions should be sent to Baltic Power no later than 10 June 2022.

The internal prequalification process for bidders will be conducted in June/July 2022. The contract will begin in January 2024 and end in November 2025.
