Norwegian Offshore Wind is gearing up towards Poland and the Baltic region, and Christian Vinstrup from Energy Consult Offshore Wind is heading up the brand-new working group for these markets.

-To get successful offshore wind projects, you need to be transparent and be willing to learn from others. The way forward in this industry is to collaborate.  I am excited to start working on establishing stronger relations between these two markets, says Vinstrup.

Poland has set an overall target of developing 18 GW before 2040. The government has launched a step-by-step plan and a timeline of capacity per tenders leading up to 2040.

This week, Vinstrup traveled to Warsaw and Gdansk together with representatives from the administration in Norwegian Offshore Wind. Important steps have already been made to strengthen the collaboration between the two countries, among others the signing of an MOU between Norwegian Offshore Wind and Polish Trade and Investment Agency.  

-We have all the reason to be optimistic about the development in Poland, and their ambitions will resonate in the whole Baltic region, says Vinstrup.

NOW met with the Polish Offshore Wind Energy Society during their visit.

The new working group will be a hub for information and market insight and will be open for all the members of NOW who are interested in making contacts. The first Visit NOW will already be in October, in connection with Baltexpo.

-The collaborations we are building now, for instance with The Polish Offshore Wind Energy Society, will be very valuable for the members of our working group. We are excited to take further steps into this market, says Caroline Whittle, who will be in charge of these markets from NOW´s side.
