PKN ORLEN Group chooses service port for Baltic Power OWF

The port in Leba, Poland will be used to service the Baltic Power offshore wind farm for at least 25 years, the company has announced.


PKN ORLEN has signed an agreement to lease a site on which a base will be built for service operation vessels to be used for maintenance of approximately 70 wind turbines. The ORLEN Group’s first offshore wind farm is scheduled to be operational in 2026.

“In addition to being a key element of the green transition of Poland’s energy system, the Baltic Power offshore wind farm will also significantly bolster national security and independence. This is why we are determined to take successive steps bringing us closer to launching this project by the end of 2026. Having a service port is crucial for the smooth operation of the project, which in a few years’ time will generate electricity for as many as one million households,” said Daniel Obajtek, President of the PKN ORLEN Management Board.

The area consists of approximately 1.1 ha, where a base supporting the offshore wind farm will be constructed. At least two crew transfer vessels (CTVs), each capable of taking on board up to 24 technicians with the necessary equipment, will be stationed there. It will take the vessels about 40 minutes to cover the 16-nautical mile route from the port to the wind farm – the shortest time compared with all the other potential locations for the base.

The service port will also accommodate spare part warehouses, workshops and office space. Approximately 50 staff responsible for maintenance of the base will be working there on a 24/7 basis.

The development of the Baltic Power offshore wind farm is a joint project of the ORLEN Group and Northland Power. The site of the project, with a total capacity of up to 1.2 GW, is located about 23 km north of the Baltic coastline, near Leba and Choczewo.
