Polish wind farm Baltic Power will use Port of Roenne

Port of Roenne has taken a leading position in the Baltic Sea as an installation and shipping port for offshore wind farms.

The next offshore project at the port will be the Polish wind farm Baltic Power, with a capacity of approximately 1.2 GW. The wind farm will be established about 150 km east of Bornholm.

Baltic Power will be the first offshore wind farm built in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea, and the 76 turbines in the project will provide electricity to over 1.5 million households.

Baltic Power will also be the first European project to use Vestas' new 15 MW wind turbine (V236-15.0 MW), which has so far only been installed as a test turbine.

“We are very pleased and proud to now also serve as the installation port for a Polish wind project, and even the first of its kind in the Baltic Sea, featuring the brand new 15 MW turbine from Vestas. We see this as a sign that Port of Roennes position as the Baltic Sea’s hub for green energy has been strengthened,” says Jeppe la Cour, Commercial Director, Port of Roenne A/S.

Baltic Power is a joint venture between the Polish company ORLEN and the Canadian company Northland Power. The project will consist of a total of 76 wind turbines, which will be installed during 2025.
