• Baltica 1 Offshore Wind Farm receives requirements for connection to the transmission grid

    08.06.2020

    At the request of Baltica 1 Wind Power Plant, a PGE Capital Group company, Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne S.A., Poland's transmission system operator, has issued requirements for connecting the 896 MW offshore wind farm to the national power grid. This is another stage in the offshore wind farms project being carried out by PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna.

  • The informational meeting for tenderers in the subject of the planned public tender for conducting seabed research

    18.05.2020

    PGE Polish Energy Group, together with its special purpose vehicles, responsible for the construction of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea, invite all interested entities to take part in the informational meeting for potential contractors in the planned public proceedings for the seabed geotechnical research. The meeting will take place in the form of a teleconference on the 20th of May at 11 am (CET).

  • PGE Baltica to start cooperation with the Polish Geological Institute

    13.02.2020

    Polish Geological Institute – National Research Institute (PIG-PIB) will support PGE Baltica in preparation for geological surveys. This is yet another step in the implementation of the offshore wind farm construction program of the PGE Capital Group. Both institutions signed a letter of intent in this matter.

  • PGE Baltica has completed wind testing in the Baltic Sea

    11.02.2020

    PGE Baltica has completed its two-year wind measurement campaign in the Baltic Sea using a floating LiDAR device. The research allowed the collection of high quality data confirming the appropriate wind conditions for the investment. This is another step towards launching offshore wind farms under the Offshore Program at the PGE Capital Group. Wind measurements at farm locations are necessary to estimate their productivity.

  • PGE received an environmental permit for the Baltica offshore wind farms

    27.01.2020

    The PGE Group has taken another step on the way to implementing its ambitious programme of building wind farms in the Baltic Sea, which is an element of the company's transformation towards the low-carbon economy. On 24 January 2020 the Regional Director for Environmental Protection (RDOŚ) in Gdańsk issued an environmental consent for two offshore wind farm projects belonging to PGE, namely Baltica 2 and Baltica 3, with a total capacity of up to 2.5 GW. The decision gives PGE green light to start work on the basic design for both farms.

    • The environmental consent of the RDOŚ concerns two projects under the PGE Group's Offshore Programme: The Baltica-2 Wind Power Plant (Baltica 2), which in January 2019 received from PSE a proposal of technical conditions for connection to the NPS for 1498 MW and the Baltica-3 Wind Power Plant (Baltica 3) with a connection agreement with PSE for 1045 MW.
    • The first electricity produced by the farms in the Baltic can flow already in 2026.
    • On December 20, PGE and Ørsted signed a preliminary agreement describing the framework for cooperation in the transaction of acquisition of 50% of shares by the Danish company in the projects of construction of offshore wind farms Baltica 3 and Baltica 2 in the Baltic Sea.
    • Wind farms are a key element in the process of transition that is taking place in the PGE Group. This is also an important element of the Poland's energy transition process.
    • The implementation of the PGE Capital Group's Offshore Programme involving the construction of offshore wind farms with a capacity of up to 2.5 GW will allow to avoid emissions of around 7 million tonnes of CO2 per year, and the green electricity thus produced will be able to supply as many as 4 million households.
