ENMARO and Pondera Consult tighten cooperation to drive Polish offshore wind projects

Poland’s ENMARO and the Netherlands’ Pondera Consult have agreed on closer cooperation. They signed a Memorandum of Understanding committing to jointly source, define, and target potential offshore wind project opportunities in Poland, leveraging their combined products and services as a consortium.

Poland has significant potential for offshore wind development, having already secured 5.9 GW through Contracts for Difference. Additionally, there are plans to procure additional capacity, aiming for a total of 18 GW of offshore wind power by 2031. Poland is positioned as a key player in the European offshore wind market

The agreement was signed in Świnoujście, Poland, during the Polish Wind Energy Association (PWEA) Conference by Andrzej Wołczyk, Vice-Chairman of ENMARO, and Egbert Jansen, Team Lead Owner’s Engineering of Pondera Consult B.V.

Andrzej Wołczyk, Vice-Chairman of ENMARO, said:

“ENMARO brings the specific knowledge and know-how necessary to support customers at the dawn of the Offshore Wind industry in Poland. We specialize in engineering, consulting, modeling, and support of strategic investment decisions. Our team has extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in the whole OWF value chain. I firmly believe that our cooperation with Pondera will add value to the offshore wind industry in Poland.”

Egbert Jansen, Team Lead Owner’s Engineering of Pondera Consult B.V., said:

“Pondera Consult is involved in all parts of renewable energy projects, from feasibility studies and permitting to procurement and construction until operations. We are  globally active and experienced in working with different cultures, with specific experience in Europe and Southeast Asia. We are intimately familiar with the technical, financial, legal, and management challenges that investors face. The signing of the agreement and joining of forces is a great start to help Poland pursue its offshore wind ambitions.”
