Offshore wind energy: Poland and Norway cooperate

Poland and Norway have formed a strategic alliance. Both want to strengthen their cooperation in offshore wind projects.

To this end, two memoranda of understanding were signed by representatives of both countries this week. According to a press release, this confirms the Norwegian offshore wind industry’s efforts to cooperate on the Polish market.

The Polish Offshore Wind Energy Association (PTMEW) signed a cooperation agreement with Norwegian Offshore Wind. The Norwegian organization represents the offshore wind industry. This MoU is expected to play a crucial role in building closer relations between the two countries and in shaping projects in both Poland and Norway. The signing took place on the occasion of Baltexpo.

Improving the competitiveness of the Polish offshore wind sector

A second memorandum of understanding was also signed with the Polish Cluster for Composite Technologies at a ceremony at the Gdansk University of Technology. It is intended to underline Norwegian Offshore Wind’s commitment to promoting composite technologies in offshore wind projects. The aim of this partnership is to leverage collective expertise and resources to drive innovation and improve the competitiveness of the Polish offshore wind sector.

Christian Vinstrup, Head of the Norwegian Offshore Wind Working Group for Poland, expressed his enthusiasm for these developments: “These Memoranda of Understanding are an important milestone in our cooperation with Polish partners. Norwegian Offshore Wind is committed to identifying and exploiting opportunities in the Polish offshore wind market and these agreements reinforce that commitment.”

Jakub Budzynski, Vice President of PTMEW, is again looking forward to further cooperation with Norwegian offshore wind supply chain companies and developers: “We are pleased to strengthen our ties with Norwegian Offshore Wind. This collaboration will play a crucial role in shaping our relationship and building a sustainable offshore wind sector in Poland and Norway that will bring lasting benefits to our environment and economy.”

It is deeply believed that Norwegian experience and Polish quality, supported by the long-standing cooperation between Polish and Norwegian supply chains, will take the industry to a new, higher level and grow the capabilities of the Polish offshore industry, Budzynski said.

Norwegian Offshore Wind represents nearly 400 member companies, and this week’s visit to Poland is the first of many planned activities aimed at establishing contracts between Norwegian and Polish offshore wind companies.
