During the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference an agreement was reached to stop using fossil fuels by 2050. Lithuania in 2014 has already fulfilled its commitment to produce not less than 23 percent of consumed energy from renewable energy sources by 2020.
In order to decrease the dependence from the foreign energy suppliers and increase internally produced GDP, Company „AVEC“ was first in Lithuania who started developing offshore wind power project back in 2002. The details of the project are being presented in this overview.
Both plots are located in the Baltic Sea, where AVEC-1 plot lies in the Lithuanian territorial waters while AVEC-2 falls under the jurisdiction of the Lithuanian exclusive economic zone. Overall area of two plots reaches 75,9 square kilometers.
AVEC-1 plot is 5,1 km far from the coast line with 20 to 30 meters depth. Vestas V90-3,0 MW and Siemens SWT-7.0-154 wind turbines were preliminary selected for AVEC Project.More details
AVEC-2 plot is located further – 31,7 km far from the coast line, while the depth reaches 41 to 53 meters. Average annual wind speed at the height of 100 meters is forecasted as 8,5 and 9 m/s respectively.More details
AVEC offshore wind power project is one of the most advanced in Lithuania and European Union according to criteria of Sustainable Innovation:
