Vestas Wins 108 MW Wind Turbine Projects in Poland

Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S has secured orders for manufacturing wind turbines from global independent fund manager DIF Capital Partners for four projects in Poland, all awarded in Poland’s second auction round from 2019, cumulatively totalling 108 MW in capacity.

The four projects are Pruszcz (70 MW), Markowice (26 MW), Piaski (8 MW) and Wyszki (4 MW). The Pruszcz and Markowice projects are located in Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship, while the Piaski and Wyszki projects are situated in Wielkopolskie Voivodeship. Turbine deliveries for all four projects are expected to begin in 2021, while commissioning for all projects will be completed by the end of 2022.

Although the company has won several new projects since the start of this year, such as in Australia, Japan, Brazil, among other places, it suffered a setback in March when a new ranking of wind turbine manufacturers for 2020 released by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), placed it at the third position. Vestas had been a four-time first-place holder until then.

Across the four projects to be built in Poland, Vestas will supply and install 52 V100-2.0 MW turbines as well as two V90-2.0 MW turbines. These orders build on the more than 2.6 GW of installed wind capacity that Vestas has already delivered in Poland.

Vestas will provide service for the projects through 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreements, providing power performance certainty and Vestas’ industry-leading service expertise throughout the lifetime of the projects.

“We’re pleased to be partnering with DIF Capital Partners for their next four projects in Poland, and continuing to deliver the wind-powered clean energy transition for Poland,” said Richard Baylis, VP Sales East & Business Development at Vestas Northern & Central Europe.

He added, “The 2 MW platform turbines are perfect matches for these four projects, and Vestas is excited to build on the 2.6 GW of installed capacity we already have in Poland. With onshore wind delivering Poland’s Just Transition, and offshore wind soon to come, Vestas is well-placed to support.”
