O&M base in Łeba

What is an operation and maintenance base

Equinor is building in Łeba an operation and maintenance base (O&M base), which will be responsible for safe functioning of the wind farms Bałtyk 2 and 3 throughout their lifetime. Short distance from the offshore power plants improves the efficiency of technicians and reduces response time to potential failures.

The O&M base in Łeba is a modern, environmentally friendly office space, remote control center, warehouse for spare parts, and wharf for mooring vessels. The implementation of the investment will create new jobs, increase revenues to the local budget and it will create opportunities for the development of the city and the region. This is an initiative implemented under our flagship ”Port Development Program".

Operation and service


Friendly workplace

Around 100 people will find long-term employment in the operation and maintenance base. These will include both technicians responsible for infrastructure maintenance, as well as administrative employees supporting handling projects from land. A friendly working environment will be created thanks to maximum use of daylight as well as the creation of recreational space with huge number of plants.

Main tasks of technicians operating from the operation and maintenance base:

  • periodic inspections of wind turbines
  • verification of performance, wear and tear as well as parameters of individual turbine components
  • troubleshooting and ongoing repairs

The O&M base will generate demand for labor, products and services produced locally for at least 25 years.
