Bałtyk II OWF

ca. 122 km2

project area

1,200 MW

power of all turbines

Bałtyk II offshore wind farm is to be located approximately 37 km north of the Polish coastline, at the level of Smołdzino Municipality. The Project will cover an area of about 122 km2 and it will include the following components:

  • maximum 60 wind turbines ("WT"), composed mainly of foundation, tower, nacelle with power generator and rotor

  • 1 internal offshore substation (OS)

  • maximum 200 km of offshore power and telecommunications cables connecting

  • WT between each other (cable circuits)

  • WT groups with the internal offshore substation

  • internal OS with the external offshore substation (being a part of another project) (optionally)

Between June 2012 and September 2014, marine environmental surveys were carried out covering the area of the planned wind farm and its immediate vicinity.

The environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedure ended with the issuance of a decision on environmental conditions on 27 March 2017 permitting the construction of up to 120 turbines with a total capacity of up to 1,200 MW, each with a total height of up to 300 m and rotor diameter of 250 m with auxiliary infrastructure, e.g. up to 6 internal offshore substations and up to 200 km of onshore and offshore transmission and telecommunications cable lines. The decision of 27 March 2017, upon performing the environmental impact assessment, was amended by the decision of 26 October 2021. The decision became final on 09.12.2021. On 15 September 2022, the decision of the Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection was issued stating that the conditions of the issued decisions remained valid and therefore the validity period of the decisions was 10 years.

In addition, in March 2019 the decision on environmental conditions for the connection infrastructure covering the connection infrastructure of Bałtyk II and III OWFs was obtained. Due to Project development, certain components of the Project were significantly modified, including primarily in the onshore section (including spatial). Therefore, on 2.06.2022 the application for issuing the decision on environmental conditions for the connection infrastructure was submitted to the Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection. The application covers the connection infrastructure of Bałtyk II and III OWFs. The procedure is in progress.

Connection point of Bałtyk II OWF to the National Power System will be located in PSE Więrzbięcino station.
