Mayor of Szczecin
Szczecin is a unique place in every way. Beautiful architecture, rich cultural life and attractive leisure opportunities. Szczecin is a green city - 30 per cent of its area is covered by forests, parks and squares. Our location, natural conditions and environmentally friendly approach mean that we are at a turning point. We are now turning our attention to renewable energy sources, especially offshore wind energy. The potential of Szczecin and our province in this respect is unique. We have the potential to become the Polish offshore hub. Key elements of this process are taking shape. In Świnoujście, work has begun on the construction of an assembly terminal where wind tower sections other wind turbine components will be handled, stored and assembled. Among other things, the terminal will enable the construction of Baltica Power's first offshore wind farm. In Szczecin, the world's leading offshore wind energy company, Denmark's Vestas, has invested millions to start production of components for wind farms. We are also co-founding the Polish Offshore Competence Centre with Orlen Neptun. We will train people for the industry. And it should be clear that all these investments will create thousands of new, well-paid jobs and attract other investors.
For several years now, Szczecin has also been attracting increasing attention from investors looking for new locations for office and warehouse investments. This is a relatively young but dynamically developing market. The warehousing sector is also unique due to the Port of Szczecin, which offers the possibility of delivering cargo by water as far inland as possible. There are large warehouse parks, stand-alone BTS facilities, smaller facilities and small urban warehouses in our region. Another advantage is the availability of cargo handling through Szczecin-Goleniów Airport. At the beginning of 2023, the total stock of the warehouse market reached almost 1.15 million sqm. As much as 85 per cent of this space, or almost 1 million sqm, has been delivered in the last six years, and developers are developing or planning new projects in recognition of the region's growing logistics potential. More warehouse space is currently under construction and the secured land bank allows for the delivery of another million square metres of modern space in the next few years. Szczecin has been developing in the right direction for years. However, we are not resting on our laurels, we are expanding our investment offer and preparing new projects. Any investor interested in setting up a business in our city can count on our professional support.
