GE Renewable Energy is already active in the Polish wind market with over 300 onshore wind turbines delivering 900 MW, almost half of which has been brought online since 2018. LM Wind Power, a GE Renewable Energy business, employs around 1000 employees at its Goleniow onshore wind turbine blade manufacturing site.

Jérôme Pécresse, Senior Vice President, GE & CEO, GE Renewable Energy, said: “Poland is well positioned to use offshore wind resources to help accelerate the energy transition. The agreement that we are signing charts a path to take pragmatic steps that can take full advantage of Poland’s substantial offshore wind resources to create win-win outcomes in terms of the environment and economic development.”
