The 350 MW
FEW Baltic II is being developed by RWE Renewables. The project is located 55 km offshore in water depths of 30-50 metres. Site investigations have been successfully finalized. The geophysical and geotechnical surveys have been executed by Polish contractors. If successfully developed, the project will deliver power for 350,000 households.

The Government plans to launch a Contracts for Difference (CfD) to support 5.9 GW of offshore wind capacity next year. Additional support phases are expected to be launched in 2025 and 2027, both 2.5 GW, leading to a long term goal of 11 GW by 2040.
