GE Renewable Energy and PKN ORLEN sign MoU on offshore wind in Poland

01 Sep 2021

GE Renewable Energy and PKN ORLEN have signed a memorandum of understanding to explore ways to work together to support the development of offshore wind projects in Poland, a country expected to award up to 10.9GW of offshore wind projects by 2030 and up to 28GW of offshore wind by 2050.

GE Renewable Energy is already an active player in the Polish wind market with over 300 onshore wind turbines delivering 900MW, with almost half of that coming online since 2018. LM Wind Power, a GE Renewable Energy business, also employs around 1,000 employees at its Goleniow onshore wind turbine blade manufacturing site.

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.

The government of Poland has announced plans to award up to 10.9GW of offshore wind by 2030 and offers new sea areas enabling development of future offshore wind projects. Poland’s offshore wind capacity is estimated to be 28GW by 2050. The country is also well positioned to serve the broader efforts to develop offshore wind in the Baltic region.
