Ocean Winds (OW) has received for its BC-Wind project in the Baltic Sea a so-called Environmental Decision. The decision was taken by the Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection (RDOŚ) in Gdańsk, Poland, for the BC-Wind offshore wind farm project.
The offshore wind farm with a capacity of 400MW is to be built about 23 km north of the municipalities of Choczewo and Krokowa in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland.
Since 2019, OW has conducted research involving more than 160 experts, 15 watercrafts, a remote-controlled submarine, and a specialized aircraft. OW surveyed a large area of 298 km2 and collected information on 140 different objects on the bottom of the Baltic Sea, of which 72 were classified as geological forms and 6 were identified as shipwrecks.
In addition, the occurrence of seabirds and migratory birds over the planned investment area, the activity of bats and the occurrence of marine mammals were assessed. The analysis was carried out with acoustic underwater detectors and an observation aircraft. Moreover, hydrological, and meteorological monitoring considering the ocean currents was carried out, as well as the extraction and examination of more than 1,700 liters of seawater in order to analyze the quality of surface and groundwater.

Ocean Winds is an international company dedicated to offshore wind energy and created as a 50-50 joint venture by EDP Renewables and Engie.
