Polish wind farm GI fails to attract bidders

Polish wind farm developer PGE Energia Odnawialna is set to restart the tender process for two offshore wind farm developments after the initial process failed to attract any bidders.

The original tenders for the ground characterisation work on the EW Baltica 2 and EW Baltica 3 wind farm developments started in October last year but no bids were submitted by the November deadline.

PGE said that the aim of the initial invasive ground research was to learn about the ground conditions and set design parameters through laboratory testing. The information gained through the onsite work was to be used to create a ground model and aid the conceptual design process.

The onsite work was expected to include up to 10 boreholes and cone penetration testing at up to 15 locations to a maximum depth of 60m below the seabed.

PGE has not indicated when it will relaunch the tender process but GE understands that it still intends to develop the wind farms.
