Protea will deliver two cranes for the Baltic Power offshore wind farm transformer station.

The machines, with a lifting capacity of 6 tons at a reach of 28 meters, will play a key role in transporting cargo from vessels to and around the platform, working with CTVs (Crew Transfer Vessels) and SOVs (Supply Offshore Vessels). The equipment will be delivered to CS Wind, the contractor responsible for the delivery of the transformer station for the Baltic Power power plant.

The cranes will be equipped with remote service access, which will ensure efficient maintenance management and troubleshooting from a distance, increasing operational safety, which is crucial for the logistical and operational needs of the wind farm.

- We are honored to be part of the Baltic Power project, which will play a key role in Poland's energy transformation. This contract underlines our ability to deliver advanced, reliable and safe service solutions for the offshore wind farm sector - emphasizes Protea in the release.

The construction of the Baltic Power offshore wind farm is a joint venture carried out by the Orlen Group and Northland Power. The investment area, with a total capacity of up to 1.2 GW, is located approx. 23 km north of the Baltic Sea coastline. The Baltic Power offshore wind farm is the most advanced offshore wind energy project in Poland. The preparatory phase was completed in September 2023, and full financing was provided by 25 international financial institutions. According to the schedule, the project obtained the necessary building permits and contracts for all key components. Baltic Power will be one of the first farms in the world to install 15 MW wind turbines and the first in the world with a significant part of the turbine towers made of low-carbon steel. After completion of construction in 2026, Baltic Power will be the first Polish offshore wind farm operating in the Baltic Sea, covering 3% of the national energy demand while reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 2.8 million tons per year.
