Hitachi Energy has won two orders from Equinor and Polenergia to provide an AC grid connection and power quality solution for their jointly owned MFW Baltyk II and MFW Baltyk III offshore wind farms.
The offshore wind farms have a a combined generating capacity of 1,440MW and are located in the Polish sector of the Baltic Sea. Hitachi Energy will provide each of the two wind farms with an offshore grid connection that will receive the power from the wind turbines and transfer it to shore, a mainland grid connection that will transmit the power into the national transmission system, and a Statcom power quality solution to ensure that power flows reliably and stably at optimal capacity and at all times, despite the often high variability of wind power. MFW Baltyk II and MFW Baltyk III are pending a final investment decision in 2024, and are scheduled to deliver first power in 2027.
