Equinor orders turbine for 1.4 GW Bałtyk II-III offshore wind projects (Poland)

Equinor and Polenergia have signed final contracts for the production, delivery and service of 100 offshore wind turbines supplied by Siemens Gamesa for their Bałtyk II and Bałtyk III offshore wind projects located in the Baltic Sea off Łeba (Poland). Siemens Gamesa will deliver its model SG 14-236 DD offshore wind turbines rated 14.4 MW each for the projects, with a total installed capacity of 1,440 MW.

The Poland’s Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) awarded Contracts for Difference (CfDs) to the two projects in May 2021. In February 2022, partners had selected Siemens Gamesa as the preferred supplier of wind turbines for the projects, and signed a reservation agreement. 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. Equinor and Polenergia are also implementing the 1,560 MW Bałtyk I project, also located off Łeba. All three Bałtyk wind parks will have a total capacity of up to 3 GW. 

At the end of 2022, onshore wind accounted for 14% of Poland's installed capacity with 8 GW and for over 10% of its power mix. The country has no offshore wind park in operation but Poland targets up to 5.9 GW of offshore wind in 2030 and up to 18 GW in 2040. Nearly 22 GW of offshore projects have been announced.
