Offshore wind farm with a capacity of 700 MW will be built in Lithuania

The Lithuanian government has proposed a draft resolution on the construction of a 700 MW offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea, Ecotown reports.

An offshore wind farm will produce approximately 2.5-3 TWh of electricity per year, which is 25% of the current demand for electricity in the country.

“The conditions for the development of offshore wind energy have already been created, and this is another step forward – the creation of a favorable environment for wind energy in the Baltic Sea,” said Lithuanian Minister of Energy Žygimantas Vaiciunas.

The wind farm should be built and commissioned until 2030.

Its area will be 137.5 km². The wind farm is planned to be located 29 kilometers from the coast, where the average water depth is 35 meters and the average wind speed is about 9 m/s.

It was previously reported that the Romanian oil and gas company invested in SPPs at its gas stations.
