Lloyd’s Register (LR) (under the Lloyd’s Register Marine Limited entity) has been authorised by the Polish Ministry of Infrastructure to conduct certification of offshore wind farms in accordance with the requirements introduced by the Polish Ministry in 2022.

This authorisation will enable LR to continue certifying offshore wind farm projects globally, as it has done in many other locations, and support Poland to achieve its multi-GW offshore wind ambitions. Earlier this year, LR became a signatory to the Polish Offshore Wind Sector Deal.

The initiative was established by the Polish Government and is supported by developers, investors and suppliers including Shell, TotalEnergies and Ørsted, with the aim to implement the tight targets of offshore wind development, whilst strengthening the local economy with the creation of sustainable jobs in the offshore wind sector.

Wojciech Zwierzynski, Managing Director of Lloyd’s Register Polska Marine said: “Lloyd’s Register has a proud history in Poland dating back to the opening of our office in Gdansk in 1956. As a newly authorised offshore wind farm certifier in Poland, we look forward to supporting our clients in the region as trusted advisers in the offshore wind sector.”
