Wind energy – Poland
The agreement can help accelerate the energy transition in Poland by helping the country take full advantage of its offshore wind resources.
With this new MoU, GE continues to showcase its ambition to support Poland in meeting its renewable energy goals and aims to further collaborate with local suppliers and help them develop their capacity to support the growing offshore wind industry in Poland and more broadly.
Daniel Obajtek, President of the Management Board of PKN ORLEN said: “We are the leader of the energy transformation in Central Europe. We are implementing a strategy that assumes an increase in capacity from renewable energy sources to over 2.5 GW at the end of this decade. We want to achieve this level mainly by investing in offshore wind energy and, at the same time, expanding the RES portfolio with additional capacity in onshore wind farms. The agreement we signed with GE Renewable Energy supports the implementation of these ambitious goals. The experience gained thanks to this cooperation and the joint involvement in the development of the Polish offshore wind energy sector will make a significant part of the developing offshore market a share of Polish capital in the upcoming concession procedure.”
