Lithuania second offshore wind farm

New 700 MW windfarm in the Baltic Sea

As Lithuania seeks to develop offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea and reduce the country’s dependence on electricity import, the Environmental Protection Agency has approved the environmental impact assessment (EIA) report on the offshore wind farm commissioned by the Ministry of Energy. The tender to select the developer of the 700 megawatt (MW) wind farm is scheduled to be launched on 15 January next year. This proposal by the Ministry of Energy still needs to be approved by the Government.

The evaluation of the EIA report also included the participation of neighbouring countries in the Baltic region. Poland, Latvia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark all contributed to the transboundary assessment of the project.

The wind farm, with a capacity of 700 MW, is set to cover an area of approximately 136.39km2 and will be situated approximately 30km from the Lithuanian coast.

The project has received a financial boost from the European Commission, which has approved a state aid scheme worth €193 million to support its development.
