December 16 (Renewables Now) - Italian oil and gas company Eni SpA (BIT:ENI) and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) on Wednesday unveiled plans to take part in Polish Contracts for Difference (CfD) tenders for offshore wind projects to be held in 2025-2027.
The two companies are already partnering in the offshore wind segment in France, where they were recently pre-qualified in a tender for a 250-MW floating offshore wind farm south of Brittany.
In Poland, CIP and Eni will apply for seabed permits and bid in the country’s CfD tenders, seeking to take advantage of the planned rollout of over 10 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030. The duo will focus on creating a local manufacturing set-up.
Eni will take part in the Polish initiative through its subsidiary Eni gas e luce that will operate under the Italian group’s Plentitude brand in 2022. CIP will be active through its New Markets Fund I. Both companies view Poland as a strategic market for their growth plans.
“Eni gas e luce aims to reach more than 6 GW of renewable installed capacity by 2025 backed by a visible project pipeline, with an objective to reach more than 15 GW of installed capacity by 2030,” said Eni’s CEO Stefano Goberti.
