Baltic Power, the joint venture company behind PKN ORLEN and Northland Power’s first offshore wind farm, is arranging another meeting for potential contractors interested in joining the supply chain for the project. Its participants will learn about detailed plans for each of the seven ‘installation packages’ making up the project implementation process.

The Baltic Power Offshore Wind Supply Chain Meeting 2021 is a continuation of dialogue with Polish businesses that PKN ORLEN started back in 2020.

During the
online conference, to be held between 30th November and 1st December, the participants will be informed of the current status of preparations and the project's schedule. They will also be present with the detailed procurement plans for each of the ‘installation packages’, namely the wind turbine package, the foundation package, the offshore substation package, the onshore substation package, the internal and export cable package, the O&M package and the logistics and transport package.

The conference is planned to have a workshop format, with each package presentation followed by a discussion and Q&A session. During the event, the participants will also be offered an opportunity to create their own unique section containing a presentation of their respective companies: their experience, business focus and contact details for other parties interested in starting cooperation. In this way, each participating company will gain access to a unique network of contacts interested in cooperating within the supply chain for the Baltic Power project.

​PKN ORLEN and Northland Power are jointly developing the site to host an array with a total capacity of up to 1.2 GW. Construction is expected to commence in 2023 with commercial operations expected in 2026. Earlier this year, Poland’s Energy Regulatory Office approved a Contract for Difference for the
Baltic Power offshore wind farm which was priced PLN 319.60 per MWh for up to 25 years.
