Hitachi Energy announced that it has secured two major deals of offshore wind farms in Poland.
The company informed that it won orders from Equinor and Polenergia “to provide an AC grid connection and power quality solution for their jointly owned MFW Baltyk II and MFW Baltyk III offshore wind farms.”
The wind farms have a combined capacity of 1,440 megawatts in the Polish sector of the Baltic Sea.
As per the local report, grid connection and power quality solution will support Poland to achieve its renewable energy goals.
According to Hitachi Energy, it will “provide each of the two wind farms with an offshore grid connection that will receive the power from the wind turbines and transfer it to shore.”
Both wind farms are likely to deliver power in 2027.
These projects would be one of the first offshore wind farms in Poland. The country aims to develop its offshore wind potential and boost the use of renewables.
The government has set a target of achieving 11 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity by 2027.
Niklas Persson, Managing Director of Hitachi Energy’s Grid Integration business, commented, “Our grid connection technologies feature in offshore wind farms worldwide, and our power quality solutions resolve bottlenecks and keep the voltage stable and the energy flowing in power systems globally.”
