ABS signs Polish offshore wind sector agreement

American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Poland Sp. z.o.o. signed the Polish Offshore Wind Sector Deal, supporting the development of the country's offshore wind energy market.

It should be noted that the initiative includes other signatories, including Total, Orsted, Equinor and Shell.

“ABS has served clients in the Baltic region for many years, and in 2023, we will celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of our ABS office in Gdansk,” said Piotr Janusz Wasilewski, principal surveyor in charge in Gdynia Port.

“ABS stands ready to support our clients in Poland, bringing our expertise in offshore wind as well as the supporting regulatory landscape to this exciting initiative,” he added.

Investors, developers and supply chain service companies have joined the Polish government to develop a strong offshore wind industry.

The initiative aims to generate 5.9 GW of electricity by 2030 and 11 GW by 2040, with a focus on the local economy and job creation.

“ABS classed the largest floating offshore wind project in Kincardine off the coast of Scotland, and we look forward to continuing to serve as a trusted advisor, bringing this expertise and capability to support the growth of the Polish offshore wind market for fixed and floating technologies,” commented Greg Lennon, ABS vice president, head of global offshore wind.
