Wind projects in the Baltic Sea

In 2018, Equinor and Polenergia started cooperation on the construction of two wind farms in the Baltic Sea, located about 27 and 40 km from the port of Łeba. The cooperation was organized in the following companies: MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III in which Equinor and Polenergia each hold 50% of shares. The commencement of construction is subject to obtaining the necessary permits and is planned for 2026/2027. The generation capacity from both farms is expected to be 1440 MW, which will allow more than two million households to be supplied with electricity.

The final investment decision for these projects is subject to obtaining the necessary permits and is planned for 2024 with the first power delivered to the grid in 2027.

In December 2019, Equinor acquired from Polenergia 50% shares in the third project of MFW Bałtyk I with a planned capacity of 1560 MW.

Wind power – the value of Polish Baltic Sea

The draft of the Maritime Spatial Plan of the Polish Sea Areas in scale 1:200 000 foresees that approx. 2340 km² of the area will be used for offshore wind energy projects. This will allow for the construction of wind farms with a total capacity of 8-10 GW.

In January 2021, the President of the Republic of Poland signed the Act on the Promotion of Electricity Generation in Offshore Wind Farms (Offshore Act). The Act includes inter alia, provisions governing the rules for investment in wind farms and requirements for the construction of projects. The entry into force of the Act will provide a solid framework for creating several dozen thousand new workplaces in the offshore wind sector in Poland.
