Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE) has applied for a new location permit for an offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea. The area included there (14.E.2) is located on Ławica Odrzana. Currently, PGE has seven submitted applications.
“We implement our offshore energy investments based on a well-thought-out strategy and economic calculation. We are interested in promising areas in the Baltic Sea, which will allow us to develop in the offshore area in the near future. According to the plan, we are consistently applying for location permits for our wind farms in other areas – this time in the area located at the height of Szczecin. Along with the last submitted localization application, we already have seven of them, ”said President of PGE Wojciech Dąbrowski.
Currently, PGE is implementing investments in the Baltic Sea with a total capacity of approx. 3.5 GW based on three location permits obtained in 2012 (decision no. IMF / 3/12, IMF / 4/12, IMF / 5/12).
The strategic goal of the PGE Group in the offshore energy area is to build at least 6.5 GW of capacity by 2040.
There are currently 11 reservoirs available in the Baltic Sea, within which PGE and other entities will be able to apply for permits for the construction and use of artificial islands (PSzW).
