Lithuania to announce a tender to develop 700 MW offshore wind farm

Lithuania is all set to announce a tender to develop a 700 MW offshore wind farm.

The country’s Ministry of Energy is preparing a tender for which it has already presented drafts of resolutions for public consultation.

The 700MW offshore wind farm is planned to be developed in the Baltic Sea. It has been reported that the farm will be developed around 36km from the shore and installed by 2028.

According to the ministry, the farm could provide up to a quarter of Lithuania's total electricity demand.

A local report mentioned that the developer should “carry out all necessary research, environmental impact assessment and other necessary actions for the development of the park.” Besides, the developer will also handle connection of the project to the electricity transmission networks on land.

"This is undoubtedly one of the most important projects in terms of strengthening energy independence. It will directly reduce the volume of electricity imports and create an opportunity to produce local cheaper green electricity,” Deputy Minister of Energy Daiva Garbaliauskaite, was locally quoted.

It has been informed that the government is likely to adopt the resolutions by the end of March 30.

Meanwhile, the government is likely to call for another tender for the offshore wind park in the autumn this year.
