Ørsted Set to Launch Tender Qualification for Wind Turbine Supply for Polish OWFs

Ørsted has released an update on its tender qualification system for the upcoming wind turbine procurement for two offshore wind farms in Poland, developed jointly with PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna.

The company said it would use the Achilles Utilities Nordics and Central Europe (UNCE) qualification system for procurement, and that it expected to launch the tender for wind turbine supply via this qualification system in week 26 or 27 “using product codes 3.23.6 and the keyword ‘Offshore’”.

Back in February, Ørsted and PGE signed an agreement to form a joint venture for the development, construction and operation of the 1 GW Baltica 3 and 1.5 GW Baltica 2 offshore wind projects, which were awarded Contracts for Difference (CfDs) by the Polish Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) two months later.
