After 17 months of surveys, Polish energy company PKN ORLEN has filed an environmental report for the construction of an offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea to the Regional Directorate for Environment Protection in Gdansk.

The report was submitted by a team of over 50 experts. Having completed this stage, it is now able to seek a building permit and prepare a detailed schedule for the project.

“Our offshore wind farm project is crucial not only for PKN ORLEN’s strategy to develop low- and zero-carbon generation sources, but also for Poland’s overall energy transformation,” PKN ORLEN Chairman Daniel Obajtek said.

”The completion of the survey and submission of the environmental report for our offshore project mark a milestone heralding profound changes of the entire power generation system in Poland,” he added.

The offshore wind farm project is being run by PKN ORLEN’s subsidiary Baltic Power, which is now seeking industry partners and technical consultants to carry out the project.

The wind farm will be located about 23 kilometers north of the Baltic Sea coastline, covering an area of about 131 square kilometers, with an estimated power generation capacity of 1.2 GW.
