Polish offshore wind project secures grid connection terms
PGE Group has obtained grid connection terms for the 896 MW Baltica 1 offshore wind project in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea.
Polish transmission system operator Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne issued the terms concerning the technical connection conditions, including the connection capacity and investments in the development of transmission infrastructure.
The announcement comes after the wind farm received a location permit to build artificial islands, a spokesperson from PGE said.
A project plan detailing the schedule and budget is being made, which will enable the signature of a connection agreement, followed by environmental investigations, the company added.
The Baltica 1 offshore wind project is PGE’s third concession area, which is located about 80km from the shore. It is planned to be operational after 2030.
The company is also developing the 1,498 MW Baltica 2 and the 1,048 MW Baltica 3 projects, for which the environment permits were secured in January. First power from the wind farms is expected to flow in 2026.
