The undertaking would be one of the largest ever in Poland’s energy sector.
EDPR, Eneco, E.ON, Oersted, and ScottishPower Renewables were named by PAP as some of PGE's possible future partners.
PGE is to choose its business partner by the end of 2019, according to PAP.
The new offshore wind farm would have a total capacity of 2,545 MW and supply up to 4 million households with electricity, the Dziennik Gazeta Prawna daily reported last month.
The project and connecting the new facility to Poland’s power grid may cost around PLN 30 billion (EUR 6.99 bn, USD 7.93 bn) in total, the paper said at the time.
The new Polish wind farm turbines are expected to be launched around 2025, PAP said.
At the moment nearly 80 percent of Poland’s power comes from coal.
