With its newest addition of the Huszlew onshore wind farm, the Swedish firm now has 4 onshore wind farms in development in Poland; the Huszlew wind farm will power approximately 30,000 homes when it begins operations
OX2, a wind energy developer based in Sweden has placed an order of 15 turbines with Nordex, a German turbines manufacturer for a Polish wind farm. The Polish government announced the results of an offshore wind tender they had concluded last month. OX2 had won rights to operate 57MW of wind energy capacity in the country. OX2 will build a 45MW in Huszlew which is located in the Mazowieckie province in East Poland. The onshore wind farm will generate 130GWh on an annual basis which will fulfill the energy requirements of 30,000 homes. The plant will also remove carbon emissions to the tune of 45,000 tonnes each year.
OX2 chief executive Paul Stormoen said: “Poland is a fast-growing market for OX2. We have currently four wind farms under construction here, and I am happy that we, thanks to the auction, can add another Polish wind farm to our extensive project portfolio.” Katarzyna Suchcicka, Country Manager, OX2 Poland, said: “At OX2 we invest in development of renewable energy sources that support the goal of climate neutrality and transformation towards a low-carbon economy. We are looking forward to the implementation of the new projects in Poland and expect a gradual increase of the RES share in the national energy mix. The result of the auction gives us an opportunity for further dynamic development.”
OX2’s ongoing constructions of wind farms are: Sulmierzyce, Grajewo, Żary and Huszlew. All four projects are being constructed under bespoke EPC contracts. The Sulmierzyce wind farm will comprise 7 turbines (23.1 MW), the Grajewo a total of 12 turbines (40 MW), Żary 7 turbines (21 MW) and Huszlew 15 turbines (45 MW). At the end of this year’s first quarter, OX2’s total capacity in the country equalled 1605MW. The wind manufacturer is also developing solar power plants in the country. It is hoped that in addition to OX2 to Nordex, Poland continues to attract and invest in more renewable energy manufacturers as it transitions away from fossil fuels to sustainable alternatives.
