Baltic Power, the vehicle responsible for the construction of PKN ORLEN and Northland Power’s first offshore wind farm in Poland, is arranging another meeting for potential contractors interested in joining the supply chain for the project.
PKN ORLEN and Northland Power are jointly developing the 1.2 GW Baltic Power offshore wind farm in the Polish Baltic Sea. Construction is expected to commence in 2023 and end in 2026 at the site located approximately 23 kilometres north of the Baltic Sea coastline, in the vicinity of Choczewo and Łeba.
The meeting participants will learn about detailed plans for each of the seven installation packages making up the project implementation process, namely the wind turbine package, the foundation package, the offshore substation package, the onshore substation package, the internal and export cable package, the O&M package and the logistics and transport package, Baltic Power said.
”Investment in offshore wind power in the Baltic represents a chance for robust growth of a new sector of Poland’s economy. The ORLEN Group, as a leader in offshore wind projects, is strongly committed to engaging Polish businesses in such projects. We will strive to maximise local content for the Baltic Power farm, one of the fastest progressing projects in Poland. We hope that considerable involvement of local suppliers will encourage them to take even more active part in further projects planned by the Group in the Baltic,” said Daniel Obajtek, President of the PKN ORLEN Management Board.
During the online conference, to be held between 30 November and 1 December, the participants will also be informed of the current status of preparations and schedule of the project, and will find out more about the project partner, Canada’s Northland Power of Canada.
