Senvion commissions its biggest wind farm in Poland

German manufacturer Senvion has commissioned 14 of its 2 MW turbines for a wind farm in Poland.

The project is located at the city of Nowy Staw, near Gdaà…„sk, and is an extension of an existing wind farm operated by RWE Innogy for which Senivon provided 22 turbines in 2013.

The commissioning of the new turbines means the project has a total power output of 73 MW and is also Senivon’s biggest wind project in Poland.Nowy Staw wind farm with Senivon turbines

The wind farm feeds electricity into the grid via an onsite substation, which is connected to an RWE HV-line leading to the nearby city of Malbork, where it is connected to the distribution grid of the local utility.

Hendrik Boschen, managing director of Senvion Polska, said: “The commissioning of the second project in Nowy Staw demonstrates once again their ideal suitability for Polish wind conditions. The Nowy Staw wind farm will make an important contribution to the country’s wind energy efficiency.

Uwe Weite, RWE Innogy’s area manager said that Poland “is one of our core markets, with fantastic wind conditions and great local acceptance for renewables“.

He explained that since 2008, RWE Innogy had built eight wind farms in Poland and the company has “plans to participate in upcoming wind auctions for further projects in locations with good wind conditions”.
