In Poland, environmental research in areas designated for offshore wind farms (OWF) started in 2012. At present, comprehensive knowledge is available on 6 areas of the OWF located in the Polish exclusive economic zone, precisely in the vicinity of the Słupsk Bank and areas to the east of it.
For nearly six years, there has been a debate in Poland between the wind industry, politicians, energy-intensive industry, local communities, electricity consumers and economists about the nature of wind energy, its potential and necessary regulatory changes. Today, in the era of inflation, dependence on fossil fuel imports, and in the face of a crisis, the question about onshore wind energy is not “if” but “how”.
Each of the areas earmarked for an offshore wind farm (OWF) project in the national Maritime Spatial Plans is characterised by a certain area size, distance from the shore, fishing intensity or specific environmental conditions. These aspects, as well as many other variables, greatly influence the cost and difficulty of the project.
We are very happy to inform that this year our annual Ambiens donation goes to Ocean of Dreams Foundation, which was chosen by whole Team.
The Foundation supports alumni of Children’s Homes in finding their strengths, motivations and passions. The foundation is based on sailing and maritime culture and tradition.
The New Year is a time for reflection and resolutions. Ambiens is mainly about people, but today we will focus on numbers. The analysis of Ambiens’ involvement in the past year, as well as in all of its activities to date, comes out very positively.
Ambiens company is first and foremost people. It is they who, with their hard work, strive to change the world for the better. One such person is Kinga Dobosz – a marine biology consultant, who, despite a long break in the industry, has found her place with us and can fulfill herself professionally.
Environmental impact assessment is one of the key stages in the development of any offshore wind farm. However, today in Poland, for the 11 projects in phase II, it takes on special significance. It is the environmental decision that is to be one of the 3 key passes to the CfD auction, among the 9 required by the Offshore Act.
Some of the emerging investments at different stages of their life cycle may cause negative impacts on protected environmental elements, including bats. This may involve destruction of roosts, occupation of feeding areas, creation of a barrier along the flyway, or causing direct mortality.
