PGE Group and Ørsted have selected a supplier to transport to the area of the future farm and install offshore substations for the Baltica 2 project – one of two phases of the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm.

The successful bidder, Seaway7, is a world leader in offshore wind power projects. The company will use both crane and transport vessels to transport and install the offshore stations. Work is scheduled to begin in 2026. The four offshore substations will be designed, built and commissioned by the Semco/PTSC consortium.

PGE and Ørsted have already contracted all the necessary components for the Baltica 2 offshore wind farm, and have signed all the contracts for their installation. The partners have also selected a general contractor for the onshore connection infrastructure. They already have all the necessary construction permits. The last step before construction begins will be for the investors to make a final investment decision (FID).

Baltica 2 is one of two – along with Baltica 3 – phases of the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm. PGE and Ørsted plan to complete the Baltica 2 stage, with a capacity of about 1.5 GW, by the end of 2027, and the Baltica 3 stage, with a capacity of about 1 GW, by 2030. Baltica 2 and Baltica 3 will form the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm with a total capacity of 2.5 GW, which will significantly contribute to the transformation of Poland’s energy sector by providing green energy to nearly 4 million households in Poland.
