REMEA has been operating in Poland since 2015. Until the end of 2019, it was the Remediation Department of the company Menard Sp. z o.o., and since 2020, it has been a separate company operating independently in the Polish market.
The main areas of REMEA's activities in Poland include:
environmental (soziological) as well as geological and geotechnical research,
remediation of contaminated areas (including soil, groundwater, sediments),
cleaning of industrial ponds and tanks at exploitation sites,
BC-Wind is an offshore wind farm with a planned capacity of up to 500 MW, which will be located approximately 23 kilometers north of the coast, near the municipalities of Krokowa and Choczewo in the Pomeranian Voivodeship. Depending on the supplier, the company considers installing between 28 and 34 turbines. The investment is the first project of the company Ocean Winds in Poland, which has been implemented since 2012. At that time, the company received a location decision (permit for the construction of artificial islands) for project B, and in 2013 - part C. In March 2021, a grid connection agreement was signed. In June of last year, the project received from the Energy Regulatory Office the right to a difference contract (CfD) and an environmental decision for the maritime part (2022), thanks to which it will be one of the first offshore wind projects implemented in Poland.
