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.
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).
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 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.
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.
