Polish offshore wind industry takes next step

The developers of the planned offshore wind farms Equinor and Polenergia have chosen a preferred supplier of wind turbines for the MFW Baltyk II and MFW Baltyk III projects. The choice fell on the German-Spanish turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa.

The two planned offshore wind farms off the Polish coast will have a total installed capacity of 1,440 MW. Under the announced agreement, Siemens Gamesa will supply its largest offshore wind turbine, the SG 14-236 DD, to achieve the maximum combined capacity of the two projects. The turbine has a rated capacity of 14 MW and can reach up to 15 MW with Power Boost. The exact number of turbines will be determined at a later stage of the development, once the final turbine supply contract and service and warranty agreements have been finalised.

“Selecting the preferred turbine supplier, we reach another milestone, moving our projects forward and bringing the best technologies into the Polish market and its offshore wind industry development. Our goal is to execute these projects in a way that brings this competitive source of clean and renewable energy to Poland, based on leading solutions. We believe this cooperation with Siemens Gamesa will accelerate further the progress of our projects that can bring several opportunities for the Polish market and Polish companies to be included in the local supply chain,” says Michal Kolodziejczyk, country manager of Equinor in Poland.

The two wind farms, located north of the northernmost point of the Polish mainland, are expected to provide clean energy for two million Polish households with the help of SG 14-236 DD. Both 720 MW agreements are still subject to the usual conditions, including the final investment decision and the necessary permits, which are scheduled for 2024. The first electricity deliveries are expected in 2027.

Marc Becker, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit says, “Once more, Siemens Gamesa is thrilled to be leading the offshore revolution, powering the start of another nation’s offshore wind adventure. Doing so with our newest offshore turbine – the SG 14-236 DD – will allow us to provide proven technology and unequalled experience to Poland from the outset. We can help unlock the power of wind as the country works towards meeting its impressive renewable energy goals.”
