The first Edu Offshore Wind trade fair is a history

The biggest companies, training centres and institutions of the industry in one place. We are after the Edu Offshore Wind 2023 trade fair.

On 14-15 March 2023, the first Edu Offshore Wind job fair took place. The whole event was aimed at primary and secondary school students, as well as students. The creation of this type of event is a response to the ever-growing demand in the offshore wind industry.

The fair began with a speech by Mieczysław Struk, Marshal of the Pomeranian Voivodeship, and Aleksandra Dulkiewicz, Mayor of the City of Gdańsk. The importance of the industry for Pomerania and in the development of ecological solutions was emphasised.

During the fair, many companies, organisations and institutions that play an important role in the offshore wind industry presented their offers. Among them were Siemens Gamesa, StoGda, CRIST S.A., coMADE, Ocean Winds, Baltic Wind, Baltic Industrial Group, Baltic Diving Solutions, Nava Engineering, BOTA TECHNIK, MEWO S.A, Equinor, Centrum Techniki Okrętowej, Rojam Alpinistyka, Baltic Fire Laboratory, Interizon Foundation, Centrum Nowych Kompetencji, Randstad Polska, Gdański Urząd Pracy, Fahrenheit Universities, Wyższa Szkoła Bankowa in Gdańsk, Polish Naval Academy in Gdynia and Gdynia Maritime University.

At the stands, it was possible to test training simulators in VR and see the latest technologies of the industry. In addition, participants took part in a number of interesting workshops and lectures, introducing important topics related to the sector and self-development, such as: ‘Competences of the future’, ‘Trafostation – needed competences and qualifications’ or ‘Self-presentation in social media’.

The most significant element of the event, however, was the overview of job vacancies, presented by trade fair participants. Given the forecasts for the industry, offshore wind in the near future will become one of the most sought-after training courses in Pomerania.

– The job market in the offshore wind sector is constantly growing. The latest estimates indicate that if the current development scenario comes true, up to 77 thousand jobs may be created in the future – says Monika Stokfisz, Talent Attraction Team Manager at Invest in Pomerania.

The culmination of the fair was the awarding of prizes for two competitions: a film competition ‘What can you use the wind for’, organised by the Faculty of Management and Economics of Gdansk University of Technology, and ‘Design the offshore wind farm of the future’, organised by Gdynia Maritime University.

The offshore sector is extremely important for the region and is part of the Intelligent Specialisations of Pomerania. The organisers of the event were the Pomeranian Platform for Offshore Wind Energy Development in the Baltic Sea, the Pomeranian Centre of Competence for Offshore Wind Energy, AmberExpo, Rumia Invest Park, Offshore Energy Innovation and coMADE, and the main partners of the event were the Self-Government of the Pomeranian Voivodeship and the City of Gdansk.
