Lotos Petrobaltic and Baltic Trade and Invest signed a letter of intent on cooperation in offshore wind farm projects. The companies will collaborate in the field of geotechnical ground surveys, the potential provision of installation vessels and an inspection vessel during the wind farm construction and operation phase, and underwater installation inspection and service.
BTI is a subsidiary of the German company RWE Renewables, the second largest developer and operator of offshore wind farms in the world.
In December last year, Lotos Petrobaltic, a subsidiary of Lotos, completed drilling work in the area of the planned F.E.W. Baltic II with a capacity of 350 MW, located in the Polish Exclusive Economic Zone in the Baltic Sea. The geological survey of the bottom of the Baltic Sea was commissioned by RWER.
- Lotos Petrobaltic intends to use all its available potential and experience to implement new, innovative projects and actively participate in the energy transformation as a national operator in the construction, commissioning and servicing of offshore wind farms in the Polish Economic Baltic Sea Zone, but also to provide external services – says Grzegorz Strzelczyk, president of the company.
- Our company is open to the New Green Deal and sees opportunities in the transformation from a strictly mining company into a company that will also operate on the green energy market, engaging in the supply chain for offshore wind farms – he adds.
