Baltic Power Onshore Substation Work Kicks Off

Poland, Choczewo: ORLEN Group and Northland Power have started with the construction of an onshore substation for the 1.2 GW Baltic Power offshore wind farm in Poland.

 Situated in the Choczewo municipality, the substation, being an onshore part of the Baltic Power project, will act as a hub for cable lines transmitting electricity from offshore substations located nearly 30 kilometres away.

According to ORLEN Group, the onshore cable route is designed to achieve the project’s minimal interference with the natural environment and will avoid environmentally valuable areas.

“Baltic Power is an example of a project placing a special emphasis on the aspects of environmental protection, sustainable development and respect for local communities, i.e. the aspects that are so important to both Northland Power and our partner,” said Mike Crawley, President of the Management Board of Northland Power.

“We are all the more glad that the Baltic Power project is reaching another, such important milestone. Our farm, the construction of which will be commenced in 2024, will secure the first supplies of green energy for Poland in just a few years, as planned.”

The Baltic Power offshore wind farm will consist of 76 Vestas 236-15.0 MW wind turbines that will be installed by Vestas’ compatriot Cadeler.
