Vestas northern and central Europe president Nils de Baar stated: “Vestas, ORLEN and Northland Power share a common vision for the energy transition in Poland and we are very pleased to deliver our wind turbines and our knowledge for this landmark project in the Baltic Sea.

“The V236-15.0 MW is built on world-class technology, and we are proud that this turbine has been chosen to power the largest single wind project in Poland to date. Our thanks go to the Baltic Power team for their excellent collaboration and professionalism.”

The developers have received $3.8bn in project financing with a 20-year term from 25 commercial banks and a number of export credit agencies and multilateral agencies.

Vestas was selected as the preferred supplier for the turbines in September 2022.

The wind farm will generate enough clean energy to power 1.5 million Polish homes annually.
