Polenergia, Equinor Book Sif for Polish Offshore Wind Job
Sif and the joint venture between Equinor and Polenergia have entered a capacity reservation agreement to supply 90 monopile foundations for the MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III offshore wind farms in the Polish Baltic Sea.
Once finalised, this will be the first contract under the terms of the strategy collaboration agreement between Equinor and Sif.
The monopiles will be manufactured in 2025-2026 and have an estimated production volume of about 105 Kton.
“It is great to witness this next chapter of the successful cooperation Sif and Equinor have developed over the years and that has materialized in the recently signed framework agreement. We are also happy to welcome Polenergia as a new potential customer”, said Fred van Beers, CEO of Sif Holding.
Polenergia and Equinor are jointly developing the MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III offshore wind farms with a combined capacity of 1,440 MW.
The two 720 MW wind farms, featuring Siemens Gamesa 14 MW wind turbines, were awarded Contracts for Difference (CfDs) in May 2021 by Poland’s Energy Regulatory Office (ERO).
Recently, the geophysical and geotechnical surveys were completed for the offshore wind projects, located in the Polish Baltic Sea.
The seabed surveys were carried out by a fleet of ten vessels owned by different contractors along a 1,000-kilometre section for the two wind farms with a total area of approximately 240 square kilometres and cable routes of 400 kilometres.
