What are countries neighbouring the Baltic Sea doing to counteract the energy crisis


This wind farm is located near the Polish cities of Choczewo, Leba and will be Cadeler’s first project in Poland.

Cadeler, a Danish company, will transport and install more than 70 offshore wind turbines. The project is expected to be signed in the second half next year.

The new wind farm is located approximately 23 km north of the Baltic Sea coast.

The project was developed and owned by PKN Orlen in Poland and Northland Power in Canada. It is expected to begin construction in 2023, and be completed in 2026.

Lithuania is preparing for its first offshore windfarm

Lithuania has taken the first steps to start its first offshore windfar. A Spanish company was there to take the first measurements and evaluate the situation.

Spain’s Eolos Floating Lidar Solutions is anchoring floating stations in the Baltic Sea. These devices will give data on wind speed, direction, atmospheric pressure and relative humidity. They also provide data about peak periods of the wave spectrum, wave height, strength, direction and water level for one-year.

Offshore wind farm developers will need to measure the turbines to determine the best models and evaluate their ability to generate power in the marine environment.

Poland amends the Maritime Safety Act

The Polish president signed an amendment to the Maritime Safety Act last week. This will allow for a new method to use ship power from an offshore windfarm to land in the exclusive economic zone of the Baltic Sea.

These changes will affect the regulations governing the sea areas in Poland and the system for maritime administration.

A requirement has been implemented that requires a permit to construct or use artificial islands, structures, and devices in the Polish Baltic area. The permit for devices that are used to power transport to the mainland can only be issued if the applicant meets the preconditions. The act will be effective 14 days after its announcement.

Vatenfall places the first turbines at Gronhult’s new wind farm

Construction of the Gronhult Wind Farm, located in Gislaved and Tranemo municipalities, began in May 2021. Now it’s time to assemble the turbines.

Wind turbines that measure almost 80 meters in length were transported from Falkenberg to Karlshamn by specially designed vehicles. Because of the large load, shipping was done at night.

The wind farm will be completed in 2022 and will be operational at the end. It will have a total capacity of 67.2 MW. Each year, the twelve wind turbines can supply around 40,000 households with electricity from renewable sources.
