"The ORLEN Group is consolidating its position as a leader in the development of offshore wind farm projects in Poland. Leveraging our experience gained from the Baltic Power project, we are well-prepared to quickly and effectively initiate preparations for five additional offshore projects. Our operations are progressing as scheduled, even outpacing other investors who commenced offshore wind activities before us. We remain committed to launching the first wind farm in the Polish section of the Baltic Sea as per our initial plans. These subsequent projects are pivotal in bolstering Poland’s economic competitiveness and growth, centred on modern energy sources. Their successful execution will represent another stride towards enhancing Poland’s energy security and realising the ORLEN Group’s strategic ambition of achieving 9 GW of installed renewable energy capacity by the end of the decade,’ said Daniel Obajtek, ORLEN’s CEO and President of the Management Board.

Among the five licences awarded to the ORLEN Group, four are situated on the Oder Bank near Kolobrzeg, while the fifth is located on the Slupsk Bank. The area adjoins the site of the Baltic Power wind farm, a collaborative endeavour between ORLEN and its Canadian partner, Northland Power. It stands as the most advanced offshore wind farm project currently underway in Poland, with a capacity of 1.2 GW, slated to commence electricity generation as soon as 2026.

In a first phase, the company will encompass wind resource assessment, preliminary geotechnical surveys, and environmental impact assessments.
