The classification society DNV has been commissioned by the joint venture between Ørsted and PGE to certify the “Baltica 2” offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea.

The project is expected to make an important contribution to the energy transition in Poland, accelerate the development of the local supply chain and boost economic activity for many years to come, according to DNV.

The scope of work of the class includes the issuance of certificates for the wind farms in relation to design and manufacturing/installation/commissioning in accordance with relevant Polish laws, regulations and codes. The following equipment is relevant for certification: Wind turbine generators, foundations, offshore substations, inter-array cables and offshore export cables.

“Poland is planning an impressively rapid growth of offshore wind energy. Introducing a proven technology to a new market with new players also brings new challenges. Certification provides a proven, structured and trustworthy way to minimize and manage the risks of introducing a technology in an emerging offshore wind market like Poland,” explains Kim Sandgaard-Mørk, Executive Vice President for Renewables Certification at DNV.

DNV expands team in Poland

To better serve Poland and customers looking to enter the Polish offshore wind market, the classification society is expanding its local certification team in Gdynia and has recently appointed Krystian Slodzinka as Country Manager for Renewables Certification Poland.

“DNV is authorized by the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure and we are very pleased with the positive reception of the DNV certification scheme in Poland by the industry. This scheme has significantly helped the industry to create a common understanding between the globally recognized certification process and the specific requirements of Polish law. The official approval reflects the confidence the Ministry has in our expertise and commitment to supporting the safe and reliable growth of the Polish offshore wind industry,” says Krystian Slodzinka, Country Manager for Renewables Certification Poland.
