A consortium of Semco Maritime and PTSC Mechanical & Construction (PTSC M&C) has secured an engineering, procurement and construction order from the PGE Group and Ørsted for four substations for the Baltica 2 project, to be located in Polish waters in the Baltic Sea.
The contract is supported by ISC Consulting Engineers and Hyundai Electric, the primary subcontractors for the project.
Baltica 2 is a 1.5GW offshore wind farm to be located 40km off the Polish coast in the southern part of the Baltic.
It is a 50/50 joint venture between Danish energy giant Ørsted and PGE Group, a Polish state-owned utility.
Expected to be commissioned by the end of 2027, the offshore wind farm will generate enough clean energy to power 2.4 million Polish homes.
The contract secured by Semco and PTSC M&C includes the design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the four offshore substations.
