Dutch to Install Foundations, Offshore Stations for MFW Baltica 2 and 3

Dutch offshore construction company Van Oord has been contracted to install foundations and offshore transformer stations for Poland’s MFW Baltica 2 and 3 wind farms. The agreement, signed with Ørsted and PGE Baltica, underscores a significant step in Poland's renewable energy expansion.

Van Oord will be responsible for installing 107 foundations and two offshore transformer stations. These components are crucial for the operation of the wind farms, which are set to contribute substantially to Poland’s green energy targets.

The MFW Baltica 2 and 3 projects, part of the larger Baltic Power initiative, are projected to have a combined capacity of approximately 2.5 GW. This capacity is expected to supply renewable energy to nearly 4 million households. The installation of foundations is scheduled to begin in 2025, with the entire project expected to be operational by 2027.

PGE Baltica, a subsidiary of PGE Group, Poland’s largest energy producer, and Ørsted, a global leader in offshore wind, are jointly developing these wind farms. The partnership is seen as a strategic move to bolster Poland's offshore wind capacity and reduce its reliance on coal.

Van Oord’s expertise in offshore wind construction is anticipated to ensure the timely and efficient completion of the project. The company has a strong track record in similar projects across Europe, contributing to its selection for this significant contract.
