Offshore Wind Consultants sets up Polish office

Offshore Wind Consultants (OWC) has set up an office in Warsaw, Poland, to support offshore wind development in the Baltic Sea.

To head up its new office in Warsaw, OWC appointed offshore wind consultant Lukasz Sikorski.

Sikorski previously held offshore engineering roles at DNV GL, as well as site and project manager roles with Iberdrola.

“Offshore wind is growing fast globally and the recent sudden drop in oil prices has fuelled interest in offshore renewables further,” said Wilhelm Sander, Director of OWC.

“Earlier this year the Polish government handed in the offshore wind act that outlines more than 10GW of capacity to be awarded by 2028 into parliament. We want to support the Polish wind industry and create jobs locally by doing so.”

OWC recently also announced it is setting up offices in Japan and South Korea to support the local offshore wind markets.
