    PGE Group and Ørsted have signed an agreement with the consortium of SEMCO Maritime and PTSC Mechanical & Construction to design, manufacture, and commission offshore power stations for the Baltica 2 project. Four stations, each equipped with two transformers, will collect electricity generated by wind turbines and export it to the mainland.

    “The signing of the agreement for offshore power stations for Baltica 2 is another contract within the project. The undertaking is gaining momentum and has clearly entered the phase of finalizing subsequent important agreements necessary for the implementation of the Baltic Sea Wind Farm Baltica. The substations will be delivered for the 1.5 GW Baltica 2 stage, which is planned to be commissioned by 2027. Our goal is to build new green power capacity in the Baltic Sea by 2030, with a total capacity of 2.5 GW, which is of great importance for strengthening Poland’s energy security,”

    said Wojciech Dąbrowski, CEO of PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna.

    “The signing of the contract for offshore transformer stations is an important milestone in the project that brings us closer to the realization of the largest renewable energy project in Polish history – a wind farm capable of producing green energy that will meet the electricity demand of approximately 2.4 million Polish households. We are pleased to entrust SEMCO Maritime and PTSC Mechanical & Construction with the design, manufacturing, and commissioning of the power plant for the first stage of the Baltic Sea Wind Farm Baltica,”

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

    Ørsted and PGE plan to complete the construction of the 1.5 GW Baltica 2 stage by the end of 2027, and the 1 GW Baltica 3 stage by the end of 2029. Both stages of the Baltica Wind Farm have received site decisions (PSzW), environmental permits, agreements with the Transmission System Operator for grid connection, permits for cable laying and maintenance (PUUK), as well as received Contract for Difference (CfD) and individual level of support decisions issued by the European Commission and the President of the Energy Regulatory Office.
