Gdynia prepares for offshore wind projects

The port of Gdynia, the district of Kosakowo and the cities of Rumia and Gdynia have signed a letter of intent (LoI) to develop and operate landside infrastructure to support offshore wind energy projects.


According to the port, Poland’s national power system currently has a total capacity of approximately 41 GW – 70 percent of which is based on coal-fired power plants.

The oldest power units will soon be withdrawn from use. “The solution to this problem is renewable energy, which will fill this gap and at the same time will be up to date with EU and global trends,” said the Port of Gdynia Authority.

The port authority added that “the Baltic Sea [will] have a chance to play a key role in the energy transformation of Poland towards a low-emission economy.”

Adam Meller, president of the managing board at the Port of Gdynia Authority, said: “In regard to our infrastructure potential and navigational capabilities, we have carried out analyses of the possibilities of adapting the land for the handling, storage and assembly of offshore wind farm components. The results indicate that we are ready to service offshore wind farms, both during the construction and operation phases.”

Reports suggest that construction of Poland’s first offshore wind farm could start in 2022.
