Together with partners, Seawind has realized a series of offshore wind projects off the coast of Poland over the past few years, as the Fritz Kaiser Group, a subsidiary active in the development of offshore wind projects, writes in a press release. All in all, these projects could generate a capacity of up to 7.3 gigawatts, Seawind explains further in the press release.
Seawind is now joining forces with Iberdrola for the further development of the offshore wind farm portfolio in Poland. The Spanish energy giant has acquired half of the shares in the Polish projects, the press release states. However, the press release provided no details with regard to the purchase price for the share package.
Seawind and Iberdrola have already worked together in the past on the Baltic Eagle project, Seawind explains further in the press release. Systems with a total output of 476 megawatts are currently under development in the Baltic Sea near the island of Rügen, which should supply up to one million households in Germany with electricity in the near future.
“We are delighted about the partnership with Iberdrola”, comments Fritz Kaiser, Chairman of the Board of Directors of SEAWIND, in the press release. He adds: “We now can fight together against global warming with our sustainability strategies in Poland”.
