    ‘Baltic: Sea of Green Energy’: Poland’s First Exhibition on Offshore Wind Power

    Equinor and Polenergia have unveiled Poland’s inaugural exhibition dedicated to offshore wind energy, titled “Baltic: Sea of Green Energy,” housed at Gdańsk’s Maritime Culture Centre, a branch of the National Maritime Museum. This exhibition stands as a pivotal moment in showcasing the Baltic Sea’s potential for advancing offshore wind energy.

    Together, Equinor and Polenergia, prominent figures in the energy sector, are collaborating on three offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea, aiming for a collective capacity of up to 3000 MW. The exhibition’s primary goal is to educate the public on the intricacies of wind energy generation, its historical context, and the Baltic Sea’s role as a vital resource in Poland’s energy transformation.

    Central to the exhibition is an interactive model that immerses visitors in the construction phases of offshore wind farms. Narrated by Krystyna Czubówna, the exhibition not only showcases ongoing projects in the Baltic Sea but also emphasizes their role in Poland’s transition to sustainable energy practices.

    “We are thrilled to partner with the National Maritime Museum in Gdańsk to bring this important subject to a broader audience,” remarked Iwona Sierżęga, a board member of Polenergia S.A. “The ‘Baltic: Sea of Green Energy’ exhibition not only highlights our Baltic Sea projects but also tells the story of Poland’s energy evolution, where wind, water, and cutting-edge technologies will play pivotal roles.”

    Visitors can explore photographs and films depicting the development of offshore wind energy and view unique exhibits from key suppliers, including marine cable fragments, ship models, and transformer station fans, enriching the exhibition experience.

    Equinor and Polenergia’s Baltic projects are poised to supply clean energy to over 4 million Polish households. The advanced Baltic 2 and 3 projects, totalling 1440 MW, are currently undergoing permitting processes, with onshore preparatory work and the construction of a service base in Łeba slated to begin later this year.

    “Equinor brings extensive global experience in developing offshore wind farm projects,” noted Michał Jerzy Kołodziejczyk, President of Equinor in Poland. “Offshore wind is crucial for Poland’s economic advancement and energy security. Through this exhibition, we aim to educate visitors about this rapidly expanding energy sector, harnessing natural resources for offshore wind power generation.”

    Exploring Poland’s Green Energy Horizon: “Baltic: Sea of Green Energy” Exhibition

    Located on the third floor of the Maritime Culture Centre, the exhibition offers a captivating glimpse into Poland’s green energy future and is open to the public during museum hours.

    “Baltic: Sea of Green Energy” joins a series of initiatives in Pomerania spotlighting offshore wind farm development. Last year, Equinor and Polenergia inaugurated Poland’s first permanent information centre on offshore wind farms in Łeba, serving as a hub for comprehensive information on joint Polish-Norwegian investments.

    Through these efforts, Equinor and Polenergia are not only shaping Poland’s energy landscape but also fostering public engagement and awareness about the sustainable future of energy production.
