BW Group, in collaboration with Scorpio-backed offshore wind installation player Cadeler, has recently inked a significant contract with Ørsted and PGE (Polska Grupa Energetyczna) for the Baltica 2 offshore wind farm project situated in Poland. This contractual agreement solidifies Cadeler’s pivotal role in transporting and installing 14 MW Siemens Gamesa turbines for the approximately 1.5 GW wind farm, strategically positioned within the Polish sector of the Baltic Sea.

Cadeler, a prominent contractor listed in Oslo and New York, has strategically positioned itself within the burgeoning Polish offshore wind sector. The partnership underscores Cadeler’s commitment to contributing to Poland’s renewable energy landscape while bolstering its market presence within the region.

In a statement addressing the recent agreement, Mikkel Gleerup, CEO of Cadeler, emphasized the significance of this project, stating, “The project marks a very important milestone for Poland as well as for Cadeler, as this underlines Cadeler’s strong entry into the Polish market.”

Baltica 2, constituting one of the two phases alongside Baltica 3, exemplifies a monumental endeavor within the Baltica offshore wind farm development. Project developers aim to conclude the construction of the Baltica 2 phase by the conclusion of 2027, while concurrently targeting the Baltica 3 stage, boasting a capacity of approximately 1 GW, for completion by 2030.

With the execution of the Cadeler contract, Ørsted and PGE Group have ensured the acquisition of vessels essential for the installation of the wind turbines designated for the Baltica 2 project. Earlier in January, the contract for installing the initial batch of turbines was awarded to Norway’s Fred Olsen Windcarrier. The collaborative efforts between these entities have culminated in the meticulous orchestration of all offshore installation contractors, poised to commence construction upon finalizing the investment decision.
