The PGE Group and Ørsted have signed contracts with Navantia-Windar and Orient Cable (NBO), which will supply foundations and internal cables for the Baltica 2 project, one of the phases of the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm.
In April this year, PGE and Ørsted reached an important milestone on the way to the Baltica 2 project with a capacity of around 1.5 GW. At that time, they signed the first of the contracts for the supply of a key component – the contract for the supply of wind turbines. Following this, in June, an offshore transformer station contract was signed. The next step is the signing of further contracts for Baltica 2 by a joint venture formed by PGE Baltica of the PGE Group and Ørsted, which are implementing the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm project. The Navantia-Windar consortium will supply the foundations – monopiles, the largest of which exceed 100 meters in length and weigh more than 2,000 tons.
On the other hand, Orient Cable (NBO) will supply 66 kV submarine internal cables with a total length of about 170 km, which will connect the turbines to marine transformer stations.
Ørsted and PGE plan to complete the construction of the Baltica 2 stage, with a capacity of about 1.5 GW, by the end of 2027, and the Baltica 3 stage, with a capacity of about 1 GW, by the end of 2029. The investors are yet to make a final investment decision (FID). Baltica 2 and Baltica 3 will form the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm with a total capacity of 2.5 GW, which will significantly contribute to the transformation of Poland’s energy sector by providing green energy to nearly 4 million households in Poland.
