EDF Renewables has entered into a partnership to develop offshore wind in Poland.
The company signed a Memorandum of Understanding with one of Poland’s largest infrastructure companies Budimex. Budimex is the largest general contractor of infrastructure projects in Poland.
It has been reported that the duo will have a 50:50 partnership and have agreed to “jointly commit to realising investments.”
This partnership will work as a part of the second phase of offshore wind development in Poland, a report mentioned. For this, 11 new sites will be used for the construction of offshore wind farms in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea.
In total, it is said that the capacity of the planned investments is likely to reach 11GW in the second phase.
