Baltic Power, the 1.2-GW (gigawatt) offshore wind project of Poland's PKN Orlen and Canada's Northland Power, has obtained its first building permit for the onshore part of the development and can start work in 2024, PKN Orlen chief executive Daniel Obajtek said cited by energy portal Renewables Now.
The decision of the northern Pomeranian province is based on approval of the land development design and the construction blueprints, the issuing authority noted.
The farm will be located 22 km from the Baltic coast, near Łeba and Choczewo. It will supply more than 1.5 million households with clean energy annually for over 25 years.
According to the schedule, the assembly of the foundations is to start in 2024, followed by the deployment of turbines, cables, and stations.
Commissioning is planned for 2026. Denmark's Vestas has been selected as the preferred turbine supplier.
