Erbud is the main contractor for the offshore wind farm service base

Baltic Power – a company from the PKN Orlen Group – has chosen Erbud as the general contractor for the maintenance base for the offshore wind farm of the Orlen Group and Northland Power, PKN Orlen announced. The investment will start this year and end in 2025. The base will serve 76 turbines operating for the needs of Orlen’s first wind farm in the Baltic Sea.


“Poland is facing the need to transform energy generation sources, and the Orlen Group will be the leader in this process. Access to cheap, green energy will be one of the basic factors determining the competitiveness of the economy and the possibility of stable growth in the coming decades. That is why we are consistently building a strong multi-energy concern, capable of investing in promising areas of modern energy, which will ensure security of energy supplies for recipients, development of the potential of Polish enterprises and increase in value for PKN Orlen shareholders, said Daniel Obajtek, President of PKN Orlen, quoted in the release.

The service base for the Baltic Power farm, which will be built in the port of Łeba, will be the center of its daily service and operation. The location is of great importance – the base must be located close to the area where the farm is located to ensure the shortest possible response time of the service teams. In this case, it will take about 40 minutes to get from Łeba to the farm area.

Erbud will be responsible for the construction of the base, which will start in 2023. (…)

Baltic Power also selected a company responsible for providing the contract engineer service. The company that will supervise the entire investment process, guaranteeing its timely implementation, will be Antea Polska. It is part of an international consortium specializing in comprehensive investment supervision, e.g. in the areas of energy, infrastructure and water management.

The construction of the Baltic Power offshore wind farm with a capacity of up to 1.2 GW is a project carried out by PKN Orlen in partnership with the Canadian company Northland Power. The investment area, with a total area of approx. 131 km2, is located approx. 23 km north of the Baltic Sea coastline, at the height of Łeba and Choczewo. The farm is to consist of 76 wind turbines, each over 200 meters high.

The PKN Orlen Group manages six refineries in Poland, the Czech Republic and Lithuania, and also conducts mining operations in Poland and Canada. Its consolidated sales revenues reached PLN 131.5 billion in 2021. The company has been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange since 1999.
