GE Vernova to Build Baltica 2 Onshore Electrical Connection 


GE Vernova’s Grid Solutions business, in partnership with Polimex Mostostal, has been contracted to build the onshore infrastructure necessary to transfer power to the grid from the Baltica 2 offshore project in Poland. 

The onshore connection infrastructure will involve constructing a 275 kV high-voltage substation, along with onshore export lines.

GE Vernova will provide the technology, including gas insulated switchgear, transformers and static synchronous compensators. Polimex Mostostal will be responsible for all civil work, equipment installation and laying the onshore export lines needed for the onshore electrical substation.

“This significant project reinforces GE Vernova’s commitment to the advancement of renewable energy and Poland’s strategic shift to sustainable energy sources,” says GE Vernova’s Johan Bindele.

“GE Vernova has been supporting PGE’s modernization efforts with various leading technologies, and with this agreement we are proud to bring our collaboration to a new level. Together with our consortium partner Polimex Mostostal, we are ready to bring our expertise and cutting-edge technology to Baltica 2 to ensure the efficient integration of its energy into the Polish power system.”

The 2.5 GW Baltica Offshore Wind Farm, to be developed jointly by Ørsted and PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna, covers approximately 190 sq. km in the Polish Baltic Sea.

Baltica 2 is anticipated to be fully operational by 2027.
