Recently is providing a full range EIA studies for potential offshore locations in Lithuanian EEZ.
Reason for participating in “South Baltic OFFER”
An offshore wind energy development in Lithuania requires a clear operational knowledge as well as legislative background/setting. Contributing to the development and participating of offshore wind energy community/network hopefully will facilitate the potential investments to this field of marine activities, helps avoiding the potential conflicts and allows solving existing ones.
