The Oslo and Norway headquartered Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has been awarded a wind turbine generator (WTG) installation contract with Denmark´s Ørsted and Poland-based PGE (Polska Grupa Energetyczna), for the installation of wind turbines at the Baltica 2, lot 3 offshore windfarm in Poland.

The Polish Baltica 2 Offshore Wind Farm is one of the largest offshore wind projects in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea, where Baltica 2 was selected for the first phase of Poland’s ambitious offshore wind buildout program by the Polish Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) in 2021 when the project secured the CFD (Contract for Difference).

Baltica 2 will have capacity of 1.5 GW and the wind farm will supply renewable energy to 2.4 million households in Poland.

Fred. Olsen Windcarrier states it will mobilise one of its special purpose-built jack-up installation vessels to the designated loadout quay and subsequently to the Baltica 2 offshore wind site during spring 2027.

Alexandra Koefoed, chief executive of Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, said: “The Polish wind energy market is a highly prioritized market for us, and we are extremely proud to be chosen by Ørsted and PGE as a reliable partner for this Polish project.”

“This contract will continue to strengthen our relationship, and we look forward to supporting Ørsted and PGE in the Baltica 2 project in Poland in 2027,” she added.
