International engineering and technical services provider ODE, part of the DORIS Group, has been awarded a contract by Polish offshore wind developer Baltic Power (part of ORLEN Capital Group) to undertake the initial technical design and building permit design for the
Baltic Power offshore wind farm.

The project is being run through PKN’s subsidiary, Baltic Power sp. z o.o., which holds a licence to construct wind farms in the Baltic Sea with an aggregate capacity of up to 1.2 GW. The licence area, of approximately 131 km2, is located approximately 23 km north of the Polish coastline, in an area near Choczewo and Łeba.

ODE will be supporting Baltic Power across multiple technical areas, including: technical designs of the offshore site, turbine layout, energy production calculations, budget and schedule, and supporting analysis. The offshore site comprises all infrastructure within the boundaries of the offshore site, including wind turbines, foundations, inter-array cables and the offshore substation platform.

This contract will be executed from ODE’s London (Wimbledon) headquarters with local technical support in both Warsaw and Gdansk and with support of local polish contractors and design offices, as requested by PKN ORLEN in the procurement process. Work is due to start under the contract almost immediately with the aim of starting construction in 2024.

David Robertson, Head of Renewables for ODE, said: “ODE has been supporting offshore wind projects in the Baltic Sea since 2012, and following a period of growth in Asia, we are delighted to return to the Baltic and to be involved with such an important project in Poland, supporting its advanced development stage. ODE brings a strong successful track record in delivering offshore wind projects globally and we look forward to developing a long-term relationship to support PKN ORLEN’s aspirations in offshore wind.

“This award will enable further regional investment by ODE and will protect and create new job opportunities in both London and in Poland itself. We look forward to also developing a local technical capability as the project evolves.”
