Stages of offshore wind farm development


The development stage, or preparation of an offshore wind farm project, includes the time between obtaining first administrative decision and the start of construction work. During this period, comprehensive studies are conducted, including environmental and geotechnical ones, necessary to obtain the required permits. The development stage ends with the final investment decision.

Areas of cooperation

  • obtaining administrative permits
  • environmental impact reports,
  • expert opinions, FEED analyses
  • building permit design
  • obtaining connection conditions and connection agreement
  • geological and geophysical surveys and analyses
  • environmental monitoring


The construction phase of an offshore wind farm could take up to four years.

Selected service and product Tier 1 suppliers and their sub-suppliers implement phases of the investment needed for its commissioning, including component manufacturing, prefabrication, transportation and installation. During this time, there is a significant increase in demand for local services associated with the influx of new employees. The construction phase ends with the commissioning of the project.

Some of the supply areas

  • prefabrication and assembly of turbines, foundations of offshore substation
  • prefabrication and construction of onshore substation
  • prefabrication and installation of cables
  • preparation of investments for commissioning
  • installation port development and offshore installation work
  • operation and service of vessels at sea
  • environmental monitoring


The operation stage is the longest part of a project's life cycle, lasting a minimum of 25 years. During this stage, the farm requires constant support, as well as service, repairs and periodic maintenance, generating demand for local labor, products and services.

Supply areas

  • wind farm condition monitoring
  • ongoing maintenance of wind turbines and their foundations
  • ongoing operation and monitoring of the offshore and onshore substation and cables
  • work at the operation and maintenance base in Leba as well as other services
  • environmental monitoring


The stage involves safe removal of the wind farm infrastructure after the completion of its operation. At this stage, the technical condition of the turbines and other elements of the farm is assessed, and their disassembly is planned. The infrastructure is then dismantled and removed, which requires coordination of activities using specialized equipment at sea.

See how you can increase your company's chances of participating in offshore wind farm projects

Trade fairs and conferences

Participation in international trade fairs and conferences dedicated to offshore wind energy is an opportunity to present products, services and new technologies. During such events you can establish direct contacts with potential customers and business partners.

Cooperation with industry organizations

Collaborating with industry organizations can help promote services, gain information on new trends and technologies, and increase a company's visibility in the energy sector. Suppliers can establish partnerships and business networks with other companies in the offshore wind sector. Joint projects and collaborations can expand a company's reach, enable knowledge and experience sharing, and provide new business opportunities.

Presentations and case studies

Presenting successful projects through case studies is an effective way to demonstrate a company's competence. In describing activities, it is useful to focus on facts showing how the supplier helped the client complete the project.

Upgrading qualifications and certification

Credibility of the supplier competencies is established based on industry certifications they obtained. They prove that the company has the required knowledge and experience, which increases its credibility on the market.

Implementation of research and development projects and cooperation with universities

The implementation of R&D projects demonstrates a company's innovation and willingness to invest in development. R&D may focus on developing new technologies or improving existing ones. Collaborating with renowned universities and research institutes on R&D projects can enhance a company's reputation for being active in offshore wind farm technology.

Supplier's Day, June 2023

Dialogue with Polish suppliers

We want to cooperate in the development of wind farms on the Baltic Sea with both large nationwide companies and small local businesses. Attend one of our events to increase your chances of participating in our projects.

Sharing knowledge about offshore wind projects and increasing local content in Poland is one of the cornerstones of our activities. We want to strengthen the competitiveness of the Polish offshore industry on the domestic market, and in the future on the European and global market.


"Through our involvement in Bałtyk projects, we have gained valuable competence and experience. This is a very promising industry for us."

Mateusz Samulak, CEO of PROJMORS

"In 2022, we built the Fairplay-37 multipurpose tug in Poland. We used it in the survey campaign for the Bałtyk 1 offshore wind farm and intend to use it in future projects."

Arkadiusz Ryż, Offshore Wind Project Manager, Fairplay Towage

"We started cooperating on Bałtyk projects in 2013. Participation in these projects allowed us to reach another level of professionalism in offshore services."

Lucjan Gajewski, Vice President of the Board of MEWO S.A.

"We became involved in the Bałtyk 2 and 3 offshore wind farms in 2022. This is a promising industry. Foreign entities are also interested in our services."

Dariusz Wojciech Czajka, CEO of Squadron Sp.z o.o.

"In 2022, we developed the Front-END Engineering Design (FEED) for the Bałtyk 2 and 3 task. Our experience and the professional approach of our Equinor and Polenergia colleagues allowed us to meet high work standards and further develop the contract."

Tomasz Walczak, Deputy Director of the Design Department at ENPROM

"Developing a method for crossing the shoreline in 2021 required our engineers to develop new methods of operation. We look forward to further opportunities to collaborate on offshore wind farms."
