Baltic Power is being developed by a joint venture of PKN ORLEN and Northland Power.
Vestas will supply 76 of its V236-15.0 MW turbines for the wind project, which is located 23km from the Polish Baltic Sea shoreline near Łeba.
Vestas Northern and Central Europe president Nils de Baar said: “We are very proud to collaborate with PKN ORLEN and Northland Power on this landmark project for Poland, which has progressed thanks to all involved actors, including the Polish authorities.
“We aim to leverage our extensive experience and market leadership in the Polish wind energy sector, where Vestas has installed more than 3.9GW of onshore wind turbines.
“The Baltic Power offshore wind project underlines Vestas’ leading role in supporting countries on their path towards greener and safer economies.”

Vestas claims that its wind turbines have the capacity to generate up to 80GWh of clean energy a year.
Upon completion, Baltic Power would be Poland’s largest offshore wind project.
PKN ORLEN Management Board president Daniel Obajtek said: “The construction of Baltic Power represents one of Poland’s first offshore wind farms and is currently one of the most important projects implemented by the ORLEN Group.
“Commercial operations are expected to begin in 2026 and will strengthen the energy security of the Polish economy.
“We want to use the knowledge and experience gained in the Baltic Power project to implement further investments in the Baltic Sea.”
Last month, Vestas decided to sell its converters and controls business to KK Wind Solutions for an undisclosed sum.
The deal covers the company’s three manufacturing units in India, Denmark and China, as well as associated staff functions.
