ABS Poland is supporting the development of Poland’s offshore wind market by signing the Polish Offshore Wind Sector Deal, an initiative that includes signatories such as Total, Orsted, Equinor and Shell.
nvestors, developers and supply chain service companies joined the Polish government to develop a robust offshore wind industry. The initiative aims to generate 5.9 GW of electricity by 2030 and 11 GW by 2040.
ABS classed the largest floating offshore wind project in Kincardine off the coast of Scotland, and we look forward to continuing to serve as a trusted advisor, bringing this expertise and capability to support the growth of the Polish offshore wind market for fixed and floating technologies
said Greg Lennon, ABS Vice President, Head of Global Offshore Wind.
Earlier in August, ABS launched detailed requirements for greener offshore operations in the first sustainability guide to target the offshore industry.
The updated ABS Guide for Sustainability Notations addresses topside functions on offshore assets such as emissions and discharge based on feedback from ABS clients including ExxonMobil, SBM and MODEC.
The guide outlines how carbon reduction technologies such as zero-flaring and zero-methane slip policies can enable assets to receive the SUSTAIN-2 notation. The ABS-classed Liza Unity FPSO for ExxonMobil in Guyana was the first FPSO in the world to receive the SUSTAIN-1 notation from ABS.
