Offshore wind energy projects


Engineering and consultancy services

The AOS works as an expert within the offshore wind energy sector includes the coordination and preparation of 10 applications for the erection of the artificial islands. These applications were required in order to carry out offshore energy projects of the overall capacity of 7 GW localized in the Polish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).  The applications were prepared due to the direct order from the foreign investor or in cooperation with the Maritime Institute in Gdańsk, as a subcontractor.

AOS input in the development of the conception for the offshore grid 

In 2009 AOS along with the companies: Energoprojekt Kraków SA and Eltel Networks SA prepared the conception for the electrical power transmission grid located within the Polish marine area and called the Polish Offshore Grid. The same year due to the AOS initiative the Polish Offshore Grid Consortium was established.

 

In 2011 based on that consortium the company Polish Offshore Grid SA was created. The shareholders of the company: AOS, BIG InvestConsult AG, Energoprojekt Kraków SA and Eltel Networks SA.

 

AOS input in promotion of the offshore wind energy in Poland

AOS gets involved in the activities that promote development of the offshore wind energy sector in Poland. It cooperates with the Polish Wind Energy Society in Gdańsk, taking part in international projects and by supporting the organization of the conferences and seminars.


In 2007 AOS joined the Baltic cluster of the offshore wind energy BOSEC. In 2008 AOS was the co-organizer of the international conference “Chances and possibilities for the offshore wind energy development on the Baltic Sea”, attended by G. Adamowitsch and J. Buzek.


Since 2010 AOS has been taking part as a supporting partner in the international project “„South Baltic Offshore Energy Regions” (SB OFFER), financed by the EU South Baltic Program.
