Mostostal Warszawa and SSE Renewables have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to outline a framework for joint activities in applying for a site permit for the construction of an offshore wind farm in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea.
The signing of the agreement follows the decision by SSE Renewables and ACCIONA Energía to jointly investigate the feasibility of offshore wind projects in the Polish Exclusive Economic Zone of the Baltic Sea. As a result of the established partnership with ACCIONA Energia, SSE Renewables applied for a 60.E.4 zoning permit. If permission is granted, the partners will jointly pursue this venture.
Poland’s Mostostal Warszawa is planning to participate in the implementation offshore wind investments by providing some of the necessary work. In cooperation they will use their 75 years of experience and previous achievements in the Polish market. Mostostal is one of the most important construction companies in Poland. The aim is to develop innovative solutions for wind farms adapted to the conditions in the Baltic Sea.
Mostostal Warszawa will also ensure the use of their state-of-the-art gravity foundation technology that can be used in the Baltic Sea. This pioneering application allows complete wind turbines to be mounted on gravity foundations, reducing construction and installation time and costs.
