Almost 400 people of 273 firms took part in PKN ORLEN Offshore Wind Supply Chain Meeting 2020. This was the first in a series of meetings for suppliers interested in collaboration opportunities in the Baltic Power offshore wind farm supply chain.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Baltic Power offshore wind farm is an essential element of transformation of the ORLEN Group and a milestone in the development of the Polish power sector. As soon as in 2024, we will start the construction of an up to 1.2 GW offshore wind farm, expected to ultimately supply clean electricity to even a million households in Poland.
FOR THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES
Offshore wind power generation is an opportunity for a civilization change and transformation of the Polish economy. It can also provide a growth stimulus for the regions where clean, green technologies will be implemented. Experts estimate that in 2030 over 30% of energy generated in Poland will come from renewable sources, mainly offshore wind farms. Their potential in the Polish zone of the Baltic Sea is estimated at 11 GW.
Offshore wind power generation in the Baltic Sea presents an opportunity to build a new branch of the economy. Its development requires a strong and efficient supply chain. Large investment projects in the sector will drive the growth of hundreds of businesses and create thousands of well-paid jobs.
The ORLEN Group is consistently building its position of a strong multi-utility group relying on low- and zero-carbon energy generation sources. We want to be the leader in energy transition and one of the largest green energy producers in the region. The construction of an offshore wind farm is one of the projects underlying our transition.
