Offshore crane vessel Seaway Strashnov

Oslo headquartered offshore company Seaway7 has announced the award of a sizable contract by PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna and Ørsted for the transport and installation of the substations for the Polish Baltica 2 offshore wind farm.

Seaway7’s scope includes the transport and installation of four substations, and the offshore activity is scheduled to take place in 2026 utilising both Seaway7’s heavy lift and heavy transportation vessels.

The contract is subject to financial close of the project expected in 2024, as Seaway7 informs.

Baltica 2 is a 50:50 joint venture between PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna and Ørsted. The wind farm, with a capacity of around 1.5 GW, will be located in the Polish sector of the Baltic Sea around 40 kilometres from shore at its closest point.

Maria Eidesvik, VP for Europe and US at Seaway7, said: “This is our second contract award in the emerging Polish market, and we are pleased to be taking a role in developing offshore wind in this key location. With this project we also look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with Ørsted on our sixth offshore wind project together.”
