Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has begun technical discussions with the Port of Gdynia to drive the port’s development as a key infrastructure site for offshore wind in Poland. Poland has announced a target to deliver 11 GW of offshore wind by 2040.
The collaboration is intended to support the attractiveness of the port to project developers as a major hub in the impending buildout of offshore wind in Poland and across the Baltic Sea region. Vestas and the Port of Gdynia are collaborating on a range of topics, including the different requirements of an offshore wind pre-assembly site.
”We are pleased to be collaborating with the Port of Gdynia to enable the development of their site and make it as attractive as possible for Poland’s offshore wind developers,” said Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, COO of Vestas.
Poland’s broader offshore wind ambitions in the region have been highlighted by the Baltic Sea Offshore Wind Declaration signed by eight Baltic Sea countries and the European Commission in September 2020.
