The cable-laying vessel of Jan De Nul Group, Isaac Newton, will install the package of four 220 kV HVAC export cables.

Baltyk II and Baltyk III are located in the Polish area of the Baltic Sea. Each will have a capacity of 720 MW and connect to the onshore grid via four HVAC submarine cables, with a combined length of 256 km. The cables will be manufactured in Greece before being moved to Europe. The projects will be connected to the grid in 2026.   

Wouter Vermeersch, manager offshore cables at Jan De Nul, said: “We are proud that Equinor and Polenergia have awarded us to install the export cables for these two important Polish projects and their recognition of the combined capabilities of Jan De Nul and Hellenic Cables. A further significant milestone in the construction of the energy transition for Poland and Europe.”
