Vestas has secured a 50 MW order from Passat Energy, a special purpose vehicle owned by Iberdrola Renovables Internacional, for the Korytnica II project in central Poland.

Korytnica II is an extension of the 83 MW Korytnica I project, which comprises 25 V126-3.3 MW Vestas turbines. The order adds to the more than 4 GW in orders secured by Vestas in Poland for turbine supply.

Vestas will supply and install 14 of its V126-3.45 MW turbines in 3.6 MW operating mode at a hub height of 132 metres. The Korytnica II project will be serviced by Vestas under a long-term service agreement.

“With more than 4 GW in orders in Poland, Vestas is intent to continue facilitating the country’s transition to clean, reliable wind energy,” Richard Baylis, VP Sales East and Business Development at Vestas Northern & Central Europe, said.

Vestas will start the delivery for the Korytnica II in the fourth quarter of 2022, while full commissioning will be in the beginning of 2023.

The project, which is located northeast of Warsaw, has been developed with support from Poland’s fourth Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction.
