    Shell has Submitted a Bid to Deliver Offshore Wind Power to Poland's Baltic Sea


    June 15, 2022 - Gulf Oil & Gas

     

      As part of the latest government tender, Amber Baltic Wind Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell plc ("Shell"), presented plans for new offshore wind locations in the Polish Baltic Sea zone. The sites selected for the contest will contribute to Poland's goal of installing 11 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2040.

      The Polish part of the Baltic Sea could host as much as 28 GW of offshore wind by 2050, according to WindEurope1. With decades of experience delivering complex offshore projects in the North Sea, strong offshore wind capabilities, and a significant presence in Poland, Shell could support Poland in realising the potential of its vast wind resources to help transition its energy mix.

      Shell has also signed the Polish Offshore Wind Sector Deal, which aims to develop local content in the supply chain supporting the construction and operation of offshore wind farms. Under the Sector Deal, the industry commits to the creation of up to 60,000 direct and indirect jobs in Poland’s wind industry by 2040.

      "Shell has been an energy partner for Poland for 30 years and we continue to stand ready to support Poland in delivering a more secure and sustainable energy system,” said Shell Poland Country Chair, Piotr Kuberka. “Offshore wind has a chance to become a cornerstone of both the Polish energy transition as well as energy independence. It is equally an important part of Shell’s plans for Poland as we look to expand our lower-carbon businesses and help a range of sectors decarbonise. By signing the Offshore Wind Sector Deal, we have also committed to working with Polish communities and businesses to bring new high-skilled jobs and help develop local supply chains.”

      Shell first entered the wind business over 20 years ago. Today, Shell has about 21 GW of offshore wind projects in operation, under construction and in the funnel of potential projects across Europe, Asia and North America. Shell also wants to work with customers, policymakers and investors to integrate power from offshore wind farms into decarbonisation opportunities across a diverse range of sectors.
