“There is a huge potential in the Polish offshore wind market. We would like to capitalize on that potential and bring the best of Ramboll to the market.

In January 2021, Poland’s President Andrzej Duda signed the country’s Offshore Wind Act into law which came into force and completed the legislative process. The legislation allows for 10.9 GW of offshore wind capacity to be either operational or under development by 2027. It envisages an investment of about EUR 30 billion of offshore wind by 2040. Poland remains the EU member state with the highest share of coal in the energy mix (over 70%), therefore the Offshore Wind Energy is a key for Poland’s green energy future.
