The renewables arm of Polish fuels group Orlen has reached a conditional investment decision on the 1.2GW Baltic Power offshore wind development, in partnership with the Dutch unit of Canadian utility Northland Power.

Orlen holds more than 51% of the shares in Baltic Power, a joint venture entity that acquired seabed rights to an area located 23km off the Baltic Sea coast, near Łeba, when Poland staged its inaugural offshore wind tender in 2021.
