Wind Energy – Terminal Poland
Budimex’s contract with Orlen Neptun II for work on the construction of an installation terminal for offshore wind farms in Świnoujście is worth over PLN 118 million, Budimex announced.
The project is the responsibility of Orlen Group, which wants to build the first in Poland, and simultaneously one of the most modern, installations of this type in Europe. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of December 2024.
The task of this WTIV (wind turbine installation vessel) terminal will be to handle, store and assemble wind tower sections with foundations and other wind turbine components. Among other things, the investment will enable the construction of Baltic Power’s first offshore wind farm with an installed capacity of 1140 MW located in the waters of the Polish exclusive economic zone.
As the investor declares, due to the fact that the availability of this type of equipment is limited in the Baltic Sea, the Polish terminal will serve investments carried out in German, Swedish and Danish waters.
Budimex will implement the land part of the investment. It will include, among others: storage surfaces for offshore wind turbine components such as towers, blades and nacelles. Communication infrastructure will also be built on a total area of approximately 17 ha, as well as a new administration and office building, it was mentioned.
