How our name was born
When EDP and ENGIE combined their offshore wind assets and project pipeline to create OW in 2019, the company had a total of 1.5 GW under construction and 4.0 GW under development; OW has been adding rapidly to that portfolio and is now on a trajectory to reach the 2025 target of 5 to 7 GW of projects in operation, or construction, and 5 to 10 GW under advanced development. In 2022, OW’s offshore wind gross capacity already operating, contracted or with grid connection rights granted reaches 11.2 GW.
OW, headquartered in Madrid, is currently present in 8 countries, and primarily targets markets in Europe, the United-States and selected parts of Asia, from where most of the growth is expected to come.See website
We are generating the future of offshore wind energy. We have an ambition to make offshore one of the main sources of renewable energy by providing more efficient and sustainable technologies.
We focus on innovative solutions such as digitalization of systems and are proud of technology solutions like floating platforms steering us towards a carbon neutral world.

Chief Executive Oficer, (CEO)
The Baltic Sea has the offshore potential to become a second North Sea. The Polish part of the Baltic Sea has some of the best conditions for offshore wind farm development due to relatively shallow waters and optimal wind conditions.
The potential of the entire Baltic Sea is calculated in a hundred gigawatts by mid-century. Poland is the largest Baltic market, with as many as 30 gigawatts planned by 2050. By necessity, Poland can, and should, become the logistics, service and manufacturing hub of the region.

How we started
around the world
Projects in countries
Wherever OW develops its investments, a local team of top experts is created in parallel.
The team in Poland has been operationally active since 2019. At the end of 2022 there were over 40 of us and we are still growing!
At the end of 2023, the OW team in Poland will consist of around 50 people of different specialisations: from engineers for the onshore and offshore part; health, safety and environment specialists, project management and the operational part of the investment. Ocean Winds has two locations: an office in Warsaw and Gdynia.
We value the culture of working in a small but effective project team. Efficient communication is important to us, which is why we maintain a relatively flat organisational structure. We are focused on results but also on good working atmosphere.
BC-Wind Project Director
One of Ocean Winds' priorities is to build a culture of support and knowledge sharing within the organisation.
We are using the experience we have gained from our existing projects to create international project teams and knowledge-sharing platforms. We want to develop competences in the newly emerging offshore wind market in Poland. Ocean Winds has adopted the principle of building a team of local experts in each market where we operate.
