Poland has received orders for 166 MW of wind turbine capacity from two projects in Poland. The orders are for projects that won contracts in the country’s December 2019 renewable energy auction, and will bring Vestas’ order book for the country to over 1 GW of projects since 2018, when Poland introduced its renewable energy scheme.
The Debnica Kazubska and the Bialy Bor wind projects will comprise six and 42 V126-3.45 MW turbines respectively. To fit with the sites’ low wind conditions, the customised solutions of 117 m towers in combination with 20 years’ Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements will maximise power production while at the same time lower the levelised cost of energy.
The projects will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as the service agreements. Deliveries and commissioning are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021.
