Bladt and Semco appointed selected supplier of offshore substations

A consortium of Bladt Industries and Semco Maritime has been appointed selected supplier of two offshore substations for the Baltic Power project in Poland. The project is a joint venture of ORLEN Group and Northland Power Inc. aiming to supply more than 1.5 million households with clean power by 2026.

The two substations will be constructed and delivered in 2022-2025 as main components of the electrical infrastructure for the wind park consisting of more than 70 turbines, each with a minimum capacity of 14 MW.

Each substation will be a 2,500-tonne steel structure standing on foundations and rising about 20m above sea level. The consortium will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the substations.
