Cooperation with the Gdańsk University of Technology and Polish Offshore Wind Energy Society

Education of staff that will make it possible to tap the potential of the Polish offshore wind farm market.

Since November 2019 Polenergia and Equinor have collaborated with the Gdańsk University of Technology (GUT) and the Polish Offshore Wind Energy Society (PTMEW) in running university programs for the future offshore wind energy sector staff. Polenergia’s employees involved in the development of offshore projects became lecturers of postgraduate studies in offshore wind energy held at the Faculty of Ocean Engineering and Ship Technology of GUT.

The Polenergia Group established cooperation with the Gdańsk University of Technology because the success of offshore wind energy in Poland relies on appropriately educated and trained engineering and technical staff, who will fully secure the development opportunities of this sector. This cooperation is an opportunity to acquire knowledge and learn best global practices in the field of offshore.

In addition, Equinor and Polenergia supported the organization of the Baltic Energy Industry Forum in 2019.

We have established cooperation with the Gdansk University of Technology because the success of the Polish offshore wind energy sector depends on properly educated and trained engineering and technical personnel to fully secure the development of this sector. We provide an opportunity to draw knowledge and learn about the world's best offshore practices. I am convinced that many young people will take advantage of this unique opportunity, as this is the best time in their careers to seek new challenges and inspiration.

emphasizes Michał Michalski, President of the Management Board of Polenergia

The launch of the study is directly related to the expected intensive development of the offshore wind energy market in Poland in the coming years. The draft of Poland’s Energy Policy until 2040 envisages the construction of windmills in the Baltic Sea with a total capacity of more than 10 GW, which puts our country in the position of a potential leader in Europe. The aim of the study is to prepare professional personnel for the needs of such a large market. The study program will enable the student to gain professional knowledge of the technologies used in the sector, as well as the functioning of offshore wind energy markets and all aspects of the preparation and implementation of offshore wind farm projects in the Polish Exclusive Economic Zone of the Baltic Sea.

Polenergia, together with Equinor (former Statoil), is implementing a project to build Poland’s first offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea. The Group’s offshore projects under development have obtained connection conditions with a total capacity of up to 3,000 MW, but the timing of their construction depends on the entry into force of the relevant regulatory regime.
