1.2 GW Polish wind farm secures grid agreement

In: Windfarms
Baltic Power, a member of the ORLEN Group, has signed a grid connection agreement with Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne for its 1.2 GW Baltic Power offshore wind farm. The agreement marks another milestone in preparations for the wind farm project, providing a guarantee that energy generated by offshore wind can be fed into the national power system.

"We aim to start producing electricity in the Pomerania region in the coming years that will power up to one million households. This is a huge venture requiring a significant extension of the transmission network in the north of Poland. Investments in this segment will need to be made by Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne. The agreement we have signed is a clear sign our project is entering the advanced phase of preparations," said Daniel Obajtek, President of the PKN ORLEN Management Board.

The ORLEN Group is making preparations for the construction of an offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea with a capacity of up to 1.2 GW. The project will be located approximately 23 kilometres off the coast of Łeba and Choczewo. The electricity generated by the wind farm will be exported via an underground cable connection linking the turbines with an onshore power station. A Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne-operated station will be built specifically for the purposes of receiving and transmitting electricity from offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea.
