The company plans to take part in Lithuania’s upcoming auction for 700 MW in the country’s part of the Baltic Sea.

CEO Daniel Obajtek discussed the company's projects for Lithuania at a meeting with its Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė on Monday.

“Lithuanian authorities will announce licence auctions in 2024 and in 2025," Obajtek said. "Poland’s Orlen alongside its Lithuanian division will apply to get the permits."
