Polish Offshore: On the Verge

PFI YEARBOOK 2020, 6 January 2020

Is Polish offshore wind about to be unlocked? Green Giraffe has been following the market for a long time and has been active over the years, we assisted in the recent sale of a portfolio of four offshore wind projects with a total generation capacity of more than 1.5 GW to RWE Renewables including the F.E.W. Baltic II project.

As a partner to Baltic Trade and Invest, Green Giraffe was responsible for the commercial structuring of the projects since 2017 as well as defined and executed the divestment strategy as exclusive financial advisors to the owners. A process that didn’t go without hurdles as key value drivers such as permitting status, access to grid connection and offtake routes have been and remain moving targets for most projects.

As politics and business come together to boost offshore wind in the Baltic sea, PFI asked Udo Schneider to author a piece in Yearbook 2020 on his view of the policies that are due to shape this flourishing industry.
