Vestas wins two wind turbine orders in Poland

Vestas V155-3.3 MW wind turbine

Vestas announced it has received two orders in Poland totalling 50 MW from the project joint venture between V-Ridium Power Group and KGAL.

V-Ridium is owned by Greenvolt – Energias Renovaveis. KGAL is a leading independent investment and asset manager with assets under management of around €11.2 billion and assets under administration of €4.0 billion.

Vestas will supply and install turbines at the 15 MW Podlasek and 35 MW Wolka Dobrynska projects in Poland, both targeted for full commissioning by the end of 2022.

Vestas received the orders for both projects in the third Polish renewable energy auctions. Vestas said the 50 MW adds to Vestas’ tally of installing more than 2.6 GW of wind turbines in Poland.

Vestas will supply and install seven V110-2.0 MW turbines in 2.2 MW operating mode at Podlasek, located close to the village of Podlasek about 100km south of Gdansk in Poland.

At Wolka Dobrynska, Vestas will supply and install ten V126-3.45 MW turbines. The project is in eastern Poland, approximately 18 km north east of the city of Biala Podlaska, in the Lubelskie Voivodeship.

Vestas will provide service for both projects through long-term 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements.

Richard Baylis, VP Sales East and Business Development at Vestas Northern & Central Europe, said of the orders: “Vestas is delivering the right configuration of turbines for the Podlasek and Wolka Dobrynska projects, with quick installations in 2022, and long-term service to ensure best-in-class performance for our customer.”

Radek Nowak, CEO of V-ridium Group, said: “This is the first contract signed since V-ridium joined the Greenvolt Group. We have always had a very strong business relationship with Vestas in Poland, and now, with the support of Greenvolt, we are aiming at strengthening that collaboration in Poland, but also soon extended it to other European jurisdictions where we are currently developing significant portfolio of wind projects.”
