The Baltic Sea will become a major source of green power in Poland as it is expected to provide some 20 percent of the country's power needs, Deputy State Assets Minister Zbigniew Gryglas said on Friday, vowing that wind farms will start working in late 2024.
Despite the global crisis and the coronavirus pandemic, the Port of Gdansk on the Polish Baltic coast advanced to the top 20 European ports in the first half of 2020, the company's spokeswoman, Anna Drozd, said on Wednesday.
It’s widely-known that the city was granted independence in 1920, but today in 1807, the Treaties of Tilsit between Emperor Alexander I of Russia and Napoleon I of France saw the then city of Danzig also become independent, if only for seven years.

The shipping channel on the Vistula Spit will serve to strengthen Polish sovereignty, independence and freedom, said President Andrzej Duda during a visit to the construction site on Saturday.
The fragments of the Lützow warship settled at the bottom of the channel in April 1945 when the ship was the target of an air raid by the RAF 617 ‘Dambusters’ squadron. The haul that has now been raised includes the nine-tonne rear wall of the ship’s powerful 280mm gun tower, a copper range finder, screws and bolts and personal items such as lifejackets and belts.
Announcing the start of construction work, President Duda said the project would be “very good news for Poland, and not just for the near future, but I deeply believe that for the coming decades."
The young seals were picked up on the Baltic coast by Blue Patrols staffed by World Wildlife Foundation volunteers.
Poland's wind power potential on the Baltic Sea is estimated over 10 GW, Deputy Climate Minister Ireneusz Zyska informed on Tuesday. Zyska, the government's commissioner for renewable energy, said Poland could achieve the 10 GW level after 2030-33.
