Mission, vision and objectives

Office of the Marshal of the Pomorskie Voivodeship for the last decade has been running, coordinating and monitoring the activities related to the development of the offshore wind energy in the Pomeranian region, which led to signing of a declaration on the establishment of the Pomeranian Platform for the Development of Offshore Wind Energy in the Baltic Sea in September 2020. This initiative brings together the representatives of the local governments, experts, research and scientific institutions supporting business and the sector related to renewable energy in Pomerania. It aims to plan the development of the supply chain for the entire sector, thanks to which the region has a chance to become a leader in this industry in Europe. It is also planned to establish an accelerator for the offshore wind farm industry and to build a Competence Centre for Offshore Wind Energy. As a result in 2025 Pomerania will be supplied with energy produced by the first Polish wind farms in the Baltic Sea.

The establishment of the Pomeranian Platform has the following goals:

  • developing economic contacts facilitating the exchange of experiences and transfer of good practices, with the involvement of regional and local entities,
  • preparing human resources for entities participating in investments, in particular by supporting educational and training activities aimed at strengthening of the appropriate competences,
  • developing and using the regional R&D potential for the activities related to the construction and maintenance of offshore wind farms,
  • conducting information activities primarily for entities that may participate in the supply chain for investments in offshore wind farms,
  • building public awareness of the scale of implemented investments, with a particular emphasis on the positive impact on the region,
  • creating the Pomeranian innovation ecosystem including elements such as: R&D system, technology transfer, start-ups and internationalisation of products and services.

Services offered

The Platform is dynamically developing, based on the potential of Pomeranian Smart Specializations (PSSs), linked to the offshore, port and logistics technologies (PSS 1) as well as eco-effective technologies in the generation, transmission, distribution and consumption of energy and fuels and in construction (PSS 3) . So far three working groups have been established within the Platform, focusing on:
• acquiring and deepening appropriate competences (soft skills within the labour market, education, research and development);
• economic development of the region (verification of companies’ potential and highlighting the capabilities of the so-called local content, necessary for the development of investments).

The groups hold regular meetings, during which the following issues are being discussed: the current activities of the Platform, legal aspects of offshore wind energy functioning, investors’ activities, supply chain as part of the local content, installation and service ports, and environmental issues.

Examples of training materials

The most important conclusions resulting from the functioning of the Platform are appeals, positions and expert opinions on:

  • the need for the Polish authorities to take legislative actions and motivating activities in order to support various forms of investments in line with the European Union’s objectives,
  • the need to include the Polish economy in the process, which has already been initiated outside Poland, of building port hinterland / facilities, such as logistics and service terminal dedicated to the construction of wind farms in the Baltic Sea,
  • the need to create a realistic opportunity for domestic entrepreneurs, who should take an active part in these investments, being elements of the so-called "supply chain".

Each Platform meeting gathers both signatories and entities interested in offshore wind energy. The openness and transparency of activities coordinated by dr Karolina Lipińska have already made the Pomeranian Offshore Wind Energy Platform a recognisable, solid brand, despite the short time of its operation.
