Details

Join this year's first physical trade mission Offshore Wind Poland!

After a long period of virtual events, it will be possible to travel again this summer. Whether you established initial contacts during the virtual mission Offshore Wind in December 2020 or are looking for new relations to expand your network, this may be the perfect time to meet your Polish clients and counterparts in person! Therefore, the Netherlands government (Netherlands Embassy in Warsaw and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency) invites you to join the (physical) trade mission to Warsaw (Poland) from 30 August to 1 September to seize opportunities in making valuable personal contacts to strenghten your position in Poland. 

The 3-day mission program is jointly organized by the Netherlands Embassy in Warsaw, the Netherlands Enterprise agency, the Netherlands-Polish Chamber of Commerce (NPCC) in Warsaw and the local Polish Wind Energy Association (PWEA), together with the Wind & Water Works platform (represented by NWEA). The program will be finetuned based on the areas of interest of the Dutch participants.

Offshore wind to achieve climate goals
Poland is still heavily dependent on coal, but like other EU member states, there are impressive ambitions to significantly increase the use of renewable energy. One of the best ways to achieve this is by developing offshore wind energy in the Baltic Sea. The rapid development of this sector in Poland offers excellent opportunities for Dutch companies looking to expand their international business. 

Under the new Offshore Wind Act and Poland's Energy Policy until 2040, over the next 10 years, at least 8GW of wind power will be installed, possibly increasing further to 28GW by 2050. Poland has allocated more than 10 offshore wind farm projects. Part of it has recently been tendered and awarded to Polish developers cooperating with  leading European developers. With local expertise and supply chain development in the field of offshore wind energyh still at an early stage, cooperation with foreign parties, including Dutch companies, is essential. 

For whom?
Participation in this trade mission is useful for Dutch companies and organisations who want to:

- Understand the market potential of offshore wind in Poland and their (potential) role in supporting this booming sector;
- Build up their network with key players in this market;
- Provide expertise to make a valuable (innovative and competitive) contribution to the (pre-)development, construction, and maintenance phase of the planned projects;
- Provide products and/or services in consultancy, financing, offshore installation & transport (OWF/grid), engineering, port infrastructure & logistics, ecology, training & education, and other suppliers and service providers from the offshore wind sector.
