OWC to work on Polish offshore wind project

Baltic Power, a subsidiary of Polish energy company PKN Orlen, has appointed Offshore Wind Consultants (OWC) as technical advisor for its 1.2 GW offshore wind development in the Baltic Sea.

OWC will support PKN Orlen during the development of the project by the assurance of comprehensive technical advisory services.

This includes the provision of technical information, analysis and recommendations regarding issues related to both the project and the market, but also engagement in revision and verification of project deliverables.

OWC’s Polish office, which started operations in May 2020, will lead the company’s work on the project.

“This technical advisory contract with OWC in Poland is confirmation that PKN Orlen is delivering on its promise to engage local businesses. We are proud to be engaged for such a major project,” said Lukasz Sikorski, head of OWC in Poland.

PKN Orlen, through Baltic Power, holds a license to build wind farms in the Baltic Sea with a maximum total capacity of up to 1.2 GW.

The proposed area covers approximately 131 km2 and is located some 22 km off Choczewo and Łeba. The plan is to begin constructing the wind farm in 2024.
