Siemens Gamesa to supply offshore wind turbines for Polenergia and Equinor Baltic II and III offshore wind farms

Equinor and Polenergia have selected Siemens Gamesa to supply turbines for the offshore wind farms Baltic II and Baltic III. The energy companies have signed final contracts for the manufacture, supply and service of 100 state-of-the-art offshore wind turbines. The signed contracts are crucial for the implementation of both projects in the Baltic Sea.

The Bałtyk II and III offshore wind farms, with a total capacity of 1440 MW, will provide green energy for more than two million households. These are investments of strategic importance to Poland’s energy security.

The SG 14-236 DD turbines ordered for the Bałtyk II and Bałtyk III projects are the largest offshore turbines manufactured to date by Siemens Gamesa. Each will have a capacity of 14.4 MW. One turn of the rotor of an installed turbine will produce clean energy that will meet the needs of one household in Poland for four days. The rotor diameter (blade span) is 236m.

“The offshore wind turbines we have ordered for the Bałtyk II and Bałtyk III projects are the flagship model of the Siemens Gamesa brand, achieving impressive power output. The finalisation of the contracts for their manufacture and delivery is crucial for the implementation of our projects in the Baltic Sea and represents a very important step in the development of the entire offshore wind energy sector in Poland. Clean renewable energy from Equinor’s and Polenergia’s Baltic projects should power the national grid as early as 2027. We are looking forward to that moment. The contract with the supplier of offshore wind turbines brings us significantly closer to it,” – says Dr Michał Michalski, CEO of Polenergia SA.

The signed contracts with Siemens Gamesa concern the design, delivery, installation and commissioning of 100 modern offshore wind turbines, as well as their maintenance and warranty service. The agreement is the final step after both parties signed a reservation agreement for the supply of the turbines in February 2022.

“The conclusion of the final agreement with the turbine supplier for the Baltic II and Baltic III projects is a key step in the development of these projects. Our priority is to bring the highest quality technologies to the Polish market to build a modern offshore wind energy sector. Our goals include providing Poland with clean energy from renewable sources, based on leading and most efficient solutions. The Bałtyk II and Bałtyk III wind farms, planned for 2027, will be among the first offshore wind farms in Poland. Their launch will have a significant impact on Poland’s energy security, providing stable renewable energy for many years to come,” – says Michał Jerzy Kołodziejczyk, CEO of Equinor in Poland.

In what is known as the second phase of development of the Polish offshore wind sector, Equinor and Polenergia are also developing the Bałtyk I project. The offshore wind farm with a capacity of up to 1560 MW will be located about 80 km from the shore at Łeba. All three Bałtyk wind farms will have a total capacity of up to 3 GW, providing green energy for more than four million households.

The projects jointly implemented by Equinor and Polenergia are a key element of Poland’s energy transition. Residents of Pomerania can find out more about them at the ‘Baltic Offshore Wind Farm Information Centre’. The information point opened by investors in Leba is the first of its kind in Poland.
