40 MW of Wind Power to be Installed in Northern Poland

September 28th, 2012 by  


Not to be outdone by their wind-power-loving neighbor Germany, Poland is set to harness 40 MW of wind with 20 Vestas wind turbines by the end of 2013.

The turbines are going to dot the skyline of Wicko on the Polish coast of the Baltic Sea, about 50 miles away from Gdansk. Vestas reports that “Poland has the potential of reaching 7 GW of installed capacity by 2020.”

Aldesa Nowa Energia Sp. z o. o. is the engineering and construction contractor; Tauron Polska Energia S.A. will own the Wicko wind farm.
