Largest Offshore Wind Farm in the Baltic Sea Progresses Towards Auction

Equinor and Polenergia are making progress on Poland's largest offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea. The Baltyk I project, with a capacity of up to 1560 MW, will supply green energy to 4 million households. The developers are using HVDC technology for efficient power transmission, following the success of earlier projects.

Equinor and Polenergia have applied for environmental approval for the connection infrastructure of the Baltyk I offshore wind project, the largest and most advanced offshore wind project in the Baltic Sea. This project is part of the second phase of offshore wind energy development in Poland, following the Baltyk II and Baltyk III projects. The developers are preparing for an auction for Baltyk I in 2025, with a combined capacity of up to 3 GW to supply green energy to 4 million Polish households.

Located about 50 miles from the coastline near the Leba Municipality, Baltyk I will have a capacity of up to 1560 MW. Electricity from the wind farm will be transmitted via cables to the Polish Power Grid Krzemienica substation in Redzikowo municipality. The developers plan to use direct current (HVDC) technology due to the total distance, a method already implemented at the Dogger Bank offshore wind farm in the UK.

CEO of Polenergia, Jerzy Zan, highlighted that a common corridor for the cable connections of all three Baltyk projects will streamline the investment process. By leveraging the experience gained from the earlier projects, Baltyk I will benefit from best practices developed during the construction of Baltyk II and Baltyk III. The developers aim to optimize construction processes and reduce costs for the successful implementation of the Baltyk I offshore wind farm.
