The Danish energy company and the Polish seaport have teamed up to work on remotely piloted & autonomous systems (vehicles, drones), robotics, as well as develop Poland's offshore wind industry.
The signatories plan to share knowledge, develop business cases, engage in research & development, and form applications for EU co-funded projects.
Ørsted and the Polish state-owned PGE intend to install some 2.5 GW of capacity in the Baltic Sea. In total, Poland plans to have 8-11 GW of energy supply coming from offshore wind farms by 2040.
"Ørsted [...] intends to invest actively in the development of Polish offshore wind energy. [...] Recognized as the world's most sustainable energy company in 2021, we conduct our investments in cooperation with local companies and communities to ensure that offshore wind development benefits local economic development," Agata Staniewska, Member of the Board, Ørsted Polska OF Services, commented.
