A consortium of strategic partners Bladt Industries and Semco Maritime has been appointed selected supplier of two offshore substations for the Baltic Power project, 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 established in 2022-2025 as key 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 2.5 thousand-tonne steel structure standing on foundations and rising about 20 meters above the sea level.

The consortium will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the offshore substations. Together, Bladt Industries and Semco Maritime are among the most experienced suppliers in the market, having successfully completed the construction and commissioning of more than 20 substations for offshore wind farms. Bladt Industries is a supplier focused exclusively on offshore wind with many years of experience in the manufacturing of steel structures for offshore substations, transition pieces, monopile and jacket foundations realised at sites in Poland and Denmark. Semco Maritime has built a strong position and unique expertise in the development, construction, and commissioning of substations for offshore wind projects based on a decades-long offshore track record.
