Poland has started competitive processes for five offshore wind seabed permits in the Polish Baltic Sea. RWE has submitted bids for all five areas with a total capacity of 7.8 gigawatts,– including a site 44.E1, located in the direct vicinity of its F.E.W. Baltic II project. Based on its track record of more than 20 years in offshore wind, RWE has developed a comprehensive concept for this particular offshore wind farm named Sharco Duo. The 1.8-GW site is located north-west of the Słupsk Bank in the central Polish Baltic Sea. RWE is expecting extensive synergies with its F.E.W. Baltic II project and operational base in Ustka during the development, construction and operation of Sharco Duo. So the company will be able to provide Poland with green and low-cost electricity. RWE’s unique design concept for Sharco Duo supports the perfect integration of the offshore wind farm into the Polish energy system, including green hydrogen production – offshore and onshore – together with innovative electricity storage solutions. RWE is also planning to support biodiversity and enhance the local ecology, flora and fauna. Safeguarding the ecosystem is also a key issue during construction and operation. Therefore, some of the many eco innovation solutions being proposed by RWE are low-noise foundation installation systems and sustainable usage of recyclable components. Another focus will be on a low-emissions operating strategy.
