Equinor and partner Polenergia have selected Siemens Gamesa as the preferred supplier of wind turbine generators for the MFW Baltyk II and MFW Baltyk III projects, two offshore wind farms being developed in Poland, with a total installed capacity of 1440 MW.
Under the announced deal Siemens Gamesa will deliver its SG 14-236 DD offshore wind turbine to cover the maximum combined capacity of both projects. The turbine has 14MW nominal power and can reach up to 15MW capacity with Power Boost. 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.
MFW Bałtyk II and III were awarded Contracts for Difference (CfDs) in May 2021 by Poland’s Energy Regulatory Office (ERO). The projects are located in the Baltic Sea, approximately 27 and 40 kilometres from the port of Łeba where Equinor has acquired a plot for its future operations and maintenance (O&M) base port. The final investment decision for both projects is subject to obtaining the necessary permits and is planned for 2024 with the first power delivered to the grid in 2027.
