Offshore wind energy

 

Based on our long time experience in the onshore wind energy sector, over the last few years we got involved in the offshore wind energy development in Poland. We support the conceptions of the development of the entire sector, as well as we prepare studies concerning the specific offshore wind farm projects, ordered by the first Polish and foreign investors and developers. 

 

Our offer includes comprehensive services concerning preparation of the offshore wind energy projects at the stage of the procedures required in order to obtain the permission for artificial island construction and the environmental decision. This concerns the offshore wind farm itself and the necessary power transmission infrastructure. Within the scope of our offer AOS carries out all the necessary studies and measurements, including the marine analyses, and prepares the required documentation.

 

Within the scope of the offshore wind energy AOS cooperates with the Maritime Institute in Gdansk and the Polish Wind Energy Society in Gdańsk. Regard to the electric power issues within the offshore wind energy, AOS cooperates with the Polish Offshore Grid SA.
