The Management Board of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone allocated EUR 200 million to support the construction of the Baltic Towers offshore wind tower factory. The Polish Investment Zone will support the construction of a production and warehouse hall for the production of offshore wind towers.
Baltic Towers in cooperation with the Spanish company GRI Renewable Industries, S.L. will build a plant producing offshore wind towers for wind turbines with a capacity above 15 MW. The factory will produce up to 150 towers per year. The newly built factory will create over 500 new jobs.
The factory is being built on the premises of the former Gdańsk Shipyard on the island of Ostrów.
– The construction of offshore wind farms is a complicated process for which we need plants built in accordance with the principles of the fourth industrial revolution. Such an ambitious investment is being implemented by Baltic Towers. We support activities that are extremely important not only for the development of the region, but also for the energy security of the entire country – said Przemysław Sztandera, President of the Management Board of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone.
The Pomeranian Special Economic Zone, together with all companies managing the Polish Investment Zone, is celebrating the 5th anniversary of the new investment support system this year. Over approximately 5 years (from September 2018 to the end of August 2023), a total of 2,255 support decisions were issued throughout the country. The value of investment projects exceeded PLN 109.5 billion. Investors declared the creation of 45,559 new jobs.
