May 23 (Renewables Now) - German energy company Innogy SE (ETR:IGY) will this week start building a 33-MW wind farm in Poland with the help of turbine manufacturer Nordex (ETR:NDX1).
The Zukowice wind park will be installed in Lower Silesia province, southwestern Poland, and is scheduled for commissioning in 2020, Innogy said on Thursday. The German firm won the project in Poland’s first auction for onshore wind capacity in November 2018.
Germany’s Nordex said separately it has received a firm order to deliver 10 units of the N131/3000 turbine and one N117/3000 for the Zukowice wind farm. It is participating in the project in line with a strategic partnership with Innogy, signed at the start of 2019, which will see the German firm optimise its project pipeline in Europe and the US and buy wind turbines for the specific projects exclusively from Nordex in the period 2019-2022.
Innogy already has eight onshore wind parks in Poland with a combined capacity exceeding 240 MW.
