Baltic Power awards offshore substation contract
A consortium of strategic partners Bladt Industries and Semco Maritime has been appointed selected supplier of two offshore substations for the Baltic Power project.
The two substations will be constructed and established in 2022-2025 as key components of the electrical infrastructure for the wind park consisting of more than 70 turbines, each with a minimum capacity of 14 MW. Each substation will be a 2.5 thousand-tonne steel structure standing on foundations and rising about 20 meters above the sea level.
The consortium will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the offshore substations.
The Baltic Power wind farm will be erected approx. 23 kilometres off the shore, near Łeba and Choczewo. When completed in 2026, the Baltic Power offshore wind farm will be able to supply more than 1.5 million households with clean energy.
