Ørsted and PGE Group signed contracts for the laying of the export and array cables for Baltica 2, one of two stages of the Baltica Offshore Wind Farm. Earlier, they finalised agreements for the supply of offshore export cables, which will be used to transfer power from offshore wind farms to land.
The chosen contractor for cable installation service is Boskalis. It will mobilise multiple vessels and burial tools to perform cable laying for Baltica 2, including a cable laying vessel and a construction support vessel.
