“We consistently conclude further contracts with global companies from the offshore industry for the installation of all components for the Baltica 2 project. We have already chartered vessels for the installation of turbines and cables, and now also a fleet that will install the foundations that commence the construction of the offshore wind farm. The start of installation of monopiles is scheduled for 2026, while first electricity from Baltica 2 will flow to consumers a year later,”

said Arkadiusz Sekściński, President of the Magemenent Board at PGE Baltica, the company implementing the offshore program of the PGE Group.

“Ørsted has 30 years of experience developing, sourcing, constructing and operating offshore wind farms, and together with PGE we’re committed to delivering offshore wind energy to Poland at large scale. In 2023 we finalized contracts for the supply of all components for the offshore part of the Baltica 2 project, and we already have the last contracts ahead of us, which bring us closer to the realization of this strategic project for offshore wind energy in Poland,”

said Agata Staniewska-Bolesta, Managing Director of Ørsted Offshore Poland.

Van Oord is a leading international contractor with more than 150 years of experience in marine engineering and Offshore projects. For the transportation and installation of foundations for the Baltica 2 project, Van Oord will mobilize two offshore installation vessels, Aeolus and Svanen.

Baltica 2 is one of two stages of the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm – next to Baltica 3. PGE and Ørsted plan to deliver Baltica 2 of 1.5 GW capacity by the end of 2027 and Baltica 3 of 1 GW capacity by 2030. The project is subject to final investment decision. Baltica 2 and Baltica 3 will create the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm of 2,5 GW total capacity. It will contribute significantly to Poland’s green energy transition, delivering clean energy for nearly four million households in Poland.
