K2 Management has opened an office in Gdynia, Poland, in support of the growing wind and solar markets in Eastern and Central Europe.
“We have been active in the Polish market since 2016, supporting a local client with the development of an offshore wind project. Our involvement has developed a strong interest from developers and utilities in the region for our services, making us confident that a local presence can better support our clients,” Chief Sales Officer and Co-Founder, Lars K. Hammershøj, said.
According to K2 Management, Poland has a strong talent pool of skilled project managers and engineers, and the company sees a demand from clients both in the region and globally for support on projects, particularly in structural and electrical engineering.
The new office is headed up by Business Development Manager Karolina Drozd, who said: “Poland has ambitious renewable energy targets and has already established a strong and well developed local offshore supply chain. Offshore foundations, secondary steel structures, jackets, installation vessels, cables, etc for many European offshore projects are already being manufactured in Poland."
Poland could have 4GW of installed offshore wind capacity in the Baltic Sea by the end of 2030 and 8GW by the end of 2035, according to the latest report by the Foundation for Sustainable Energy (FNEZ).
