The Zielona Debsk project with a total capacity of 121 MW will be located in north-central Poland in the Mazovian Province. The site-specific solution comprises 55 V110-2.0 MW turbines in 2.2 MW Power Optimised Mode on 120 metre towers and a long-term service agreement, leveraging the flexibility of the 2 MW platform to cater for local requirements and maximise the power production while lowering the levelised cost of energy.

“A couple of weeks after the announcement of the new strategy of Polenergia, we have accomplished another milestone related to its’ implementation” said Michał Michalski, Ph.D., President of the Management Board of Polenergia. “In spite of the adverse macro-economic conditions we have been working on our projects in an uninterrupted mode. The Dębsk Wind Farm construction is a next significant step in Polish energy market green transformation. The estimated annual production of the Dębsk Wind Farm will amount to 366 GWh, which correspondents to demand for electricity of 183,000 households.

Nils de Baar, President of Vestas Northern and Central Europe, added that the Zielona Debsk project will be Vestas fourth project together with its trusted partner and that the auction success underlines onshore wind’s position as the most cost-efficient energy solution to further drive renewables and thus the decarbonisation of the Polish industry.

With this order, Vestas has supported its customers to succeed in competitive auctions and win more than 1.2 GW of onshore wind energy projects in Poland, since the country introduced its auction scheme in 2018.

The project will feature a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, lowering turbine downtime and thus optimising the energy output. The contract further includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as 30-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreements. Deliveries are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021, while commissioning is planned to start in the fourth quarter of 2021.
