PGE and Ørsted secure building permits for the 1.5 GW Baltica 2 wind project (Poland)

The Polish utility PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna and Denmark’s Ørsted have received permits from the Pomeranian Voivodeship authorities to launch the construction of their 1.5 GW Baltica 2 offshore wind project, located off Poland’s North Sea coast. The approvals mark the last step in the permitting process and will allow the installation of 107 wind turbines and four marine transformer stations and power distribution facilities. The turbines will be supplied by Siemens Gamesa.

The Baltica offshore wind project, with a total capacity of up to 2.5 GW, will be developed in two stages: Baltica 2 and Baltica 3. The 1 GW Baltica 3 stage is planned for 2026, while the 1.5 GW Baltica 2 stage is to be commissioned in 2027. 

As of end-2022, Poland did not yet have any offshore wind capacity but had nearly 8 GW of onshore wind capacity, which represented over 13% of the country’s total installed capacity. Poland currently has nearly 1 GW of wind capacity under construction and over 26 GW under development.
