SeaRenergy, which already started working on the project, will prepare the OSS topside concept design, including electrical design, which creates a basis for the construction permit. The integrated service contract also includes the preparation of the documentation necessary for applying for and obtaining the construction permit for the offshore substation.

The company will engage its in-house specialist companies Seartec and Elbe1, and also said it would execute the project by including experienced partners also involving as much local content as possible to contribute to the Polish offshore wind development.

The BC-Wind offshore wind farm, Ocean Winds’ first project in Poland, is proposed to be built about 23 kilometres north of the municipalities of Choczewo and Krokowa in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, across two sites.
