With the first round of 5 GW offshore wind projects in development & procurement phase now and the second round leases up to 11 GW being assigned to developers, Offshore Wind is one of the fastest-developing renewable energy sources in Poland that will substantially accelerate in the coming years. On top of that, the government currently plans to increase the 2030 target capacity from 5 to 12 GW. The Netherlands is cooperating closely with Polish partners, government and other organisations through knowledge and expertise exchange. One of the frameworks to enhance bilateral cooperation and partnerships is the Partners in International Business (PIB) programme “LinkedbyOffshore Wind” that was initiated in August 2022 by 12 Dutch private parties* together with the Dutch government.
As part of the PIB programme, we are now inviting companies to participate in the upcoming trade mission to Gdansk/Gdynia and Szczecin from 22 to 24 February 2023. This trade mission focuses on reinforcing the local network with relevant offshore players in these coastal regions. In close cooperation with Pomeranian Offshore Platform, we have set up a Polish Dutch Offshore Wind breakfast conference and a series of company visits, information and networking sessions that will help you to identify business needs and opportunities for partnerships and future cooperation.
