Equinor selects Turbine supplier for projects in Poland

Equinor and partner Polenergia have selected Siemens Gamesa as the preferred supplier of wind turbine generators for the MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III projects, two of the largest and most advanced offshore wind farms being developed in Poland, with a total installed capacity of 1440 MW. The signing of the preferred supplier agreement is a key milestone for the MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III projects. It is an important step towards delivering on the projects’ goal of providing offshore wind energy as a significant part of the Polish energy transformation.

“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 Michał Kołodziejczyk, country manager of Equinor in Poland.

Under the announced deal Siemens Gamesa will deliver its flagship model SG 14-236 DD offshore wind turbine to cover the maximum combined capacity of both projects. The turbine has 14 MW nominal power and can reach up to 15 MW capacity with Power Boost.

This is Siemens Gamesa’s largest direct drive offshore wind turbine and it will have been running commercially for a couple of years when installed on Equinor and Polenergia’s projects. The exact number of machines remains to be determined at a later phase of the development upon completing the final turbine supply agreement and service and warranty agreements.
