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 projectы

Siemens Gamesa wins order for Equinor and Polenergia's Baltyk offshore megaproject

Warsaw, February 23 - Neftegaz.RU. Siemens Gamesa has signed 2 agreements as preferred supplier for the MFW Baltyk II and III wind farms, located in the Baltic Sea and with a capacity of 720 MW respectively.

The combined capacity of both projects adds up to 1440 MW which is a substantial part of the 1st phase of Polish offshore wind industry development scheme with a total capacity of 5900 MW.

The final investment decision for both projects is subject to obtaining the necessary permits and is planned for 2024 with the 1st power delivered to the grid in 2027.

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.
Marc Becker, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit said:
  • 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
With the large modern wind turbines selected for the Equinor and Polenergia projects, 1 rotation of the rotor at full load will supply enough electricity for 1 average household in Poland for 4 days.
When 1 turbine is running at full load, it will only take 10 minutes to produce the electricity needed to power one average Polish household for 1 year.

Poland has set an ambitious target for the provision of 5.9 GW of offshore wind power by 2030, and up to 11 GW by 2040 in a plan to address the climate emergency through the decarbonization of energy generation.
