Top Polish Oil and Gas Player Issues Offshore Wind Tender

Poland’s biggest oil and gas company, PKN Orlen (Polski Koncern Noftowy), has announced a tender for the development of a preliminary technical concept to determine the options for preparing and implementing a project involving the construction of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea.

Under the licence held by PKN Orlen, the maximum capacity of the wind farms could be 1,200MW.

The technical concept will cover a wide range of works, including the construction of technical, measurement/surveying and services infrastructure for the preparatory, execution and operational phases of the project.

“Embarking on a wind farm project is in line with our strategic objectives and plans for Poland’s transition to a low-carbon economy. We hope the tender attracts strong interest from domestic firms,” said Marcin Wasilewski, Executive Director of Energy at PKN Orlen.

After the bidding procedure, technical dialogue and contractor selection process close, a contract for the development of a preliminary concept for the offshore wind farms will be signed, the company said.
