Polish energy firms to set up wind farms on Baltic sea

Poland's biggest power group PGE and largest refiner PKN Orlen will set up wind farms in the Baltic Sea in cooperation with their foreign partners, the antimonopoly office UOKiK said on Friday.

The Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK), has issued permits for the establishment of two joint-ventures to construct offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea.

In the first case, PGE and its Danish counterpart, Orsted, have received permission to jointly develop two offshore projects.

In the second instance, PKN Orlen will partner with Canada's Northland Power to jointly develop a 1.2 gigawatt offshore wind farm.
