In Poland, RWE and Siemens Gamesa will cooperate to accelerate growth in the offshore wind sector. RWE selects Siemens Gamesa as preferred supplier for the FEW Baltic II offshore wind project.

An ambitious project

In Poland, the FEW Baltic II offshore wind farm will have a capacity of 350 MW. The wind turbines on the site will use 25 Siemens Gamesa SG 14-236 DD turbines. In addition, the two companies announce a service contract.

Subject to the final investment decision, work could begin as early as 2024. Once operational, FEW Baltic II will produce enough green electricity to cover the needs of approximately 350,000 Polish households. The offshore wind farm will also contribute to Poland’s energy transition.

Local involvement

Offshore wind power will enable RWE to become a major player in Poland. For Siemens Gamesa, the agreement will contribute to its cooperation with the Polish supply chain. In addition, the Polish market represents more than €250 million of purchases of goods and services per year.

In Poland, the realization of Few Baltic II and various future offshore projects will require a new offshore execution center. The creation of this center will bring together more than 150 experts, located in the Baltic Sea. Gdansk will be the headquarters and will cover various areas and activities related to offshore wind farms in Poland.

University cooperation

The port ofUstka will allow the operation and maintenance of the FEW Baltic II project. The University of Szczecin signed a memorandum of understanding with RWE and Siemens Gamesa in order to collaborate on research projects. The objective is to share knowledge in this field.

The University of the Sciences will adapt its programs to this new challenge as part of the training of students. Already today, many of them have expertise in securing and operating offshore technologies. This cooperation will also expand the possibility of using research equipment at the maritime university.
