Wind Farm Components Factory for Szczecin
Bilfinger Crist Offshore Dec. 5 officially started construction of a zl.350 million plant in the northwestern city of Szczecin that will produce foundations for offshore wind farms.

Bilfinger Crist Offshore is a joint-venture company set up by German builder Bilfinger Berger, Poland’s Crist shipyard based in the Baltic port of Gdynia, and the Polish government’s Industrial Development Agency (ARP). Bilfinger holds 62.5 percent of the stock in the company, the Industrial Development Agency has 35.67 percent, and the Crist shipyard 1.83 percent.

The factory is being built on the island of Gryfia on a site that was recently made part of the Szczecin subzone of the Euro-Park Mielec special economic zone managed by the Industrial Development Agency.

Production at the plant is due to be launched in 2015. Ultimately the factory will create about 600 jobs and produce about 50 foundations a year, each weighing from 700 to 900 tons. The main buyers will be companies from Germany and Britain.

Bilfinger’s Joachim Enenkel said the factory is the largest single project in the world being carried out by the German corporation.

Four Polish Universities Among Top 100

These are the University of Warsaw, which was ranked 23rd, the Jagiellonian University in Cracow (41st), the Warsaw University of Technology (64th), and the University of £ód¼ (100th). The magazine’s BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings 2014 are based on criteria including the universities’ performance in teaching, research, collaboration with industry and business, as well as the number of citations in research papers.

The ranking list includes six universities in Turkey, three in the Czech Republic, two in Hungary, three in Russia, and five in Thailand.
