The Pomeranian Voivode has issued a decision on the location of the investment in terms of a set of power derivation facilities for the F.E.W. Baltic II offshore wind farm, owned by RWE.
The decision covers the construction of an onshore substation together with technical infrastructure, fibre-optic routes and a connection to the substation of the Polish Power Grid (PSE). The station will be built on the territory of the Redzikowo municipality (formerly the Słupsk municipality). The issued location decision for the onshore substation is legally valid and final.
– The construction of the onshore substation is one of the key elements of the F.E.W. Baltic II connection infrastructure. It will make it possible to transmit electricity from the offshore substation to land and feed it into the National Electricity System. Figuratively speaking – thanks to this infrastructure we will be able to transmit the green energy generated by the F.E.W. Baltic II offshore wind farm to approximately 350,000 Polish households – emphasises Tomasz Kreft, Team Lead Consenting at RWE.
The location decision for the onshore substation is another, after the environmental decision for the connection infrastructure, which RWE has secured in recent weeks for the F.E.W. Baltic II project. The decision covers: the location of the onshore substation and the introduction of an overhead power line connecting the RWE substation to the PSE infrastructure, as well as the construction of technical infrastructure including external connections, the substation technical building and access roads.
The 350 MW F.E.W Baltic II offshore wind farm is a project in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea in an area of approximately 41 km2, more than 50 km from the shore, north of Ustka. The project is entirely implemented by RWE.
In 2021. The Energy Regulatory Office granted the F.E.W. Baltic II project the right to cover the negative balance subject to approval by the European Commission. Seabed surveys have been completed – both geophysical surveys and preliminary geotechnical investigations have been carried out by Polish contractors. The F.E.W. Baltic II project is now at an advanced stage, awaiting further administrative decisions and permits.
