Tychowo Wind Farm On-line

Nordex AG has completed a new wind farm in Tychowo, around 350 km north-west of Warsaw, in Poland, on the Baltic coast.

The installation comprises 20 N90/2500 turbines each with a nominal output of 2.5 MW and will be generating some 100 GWh annually. The turbines of the 50 MW wind farm have been assembled on top of tubular towers with a height of 100 meters. As measurements indicated mean wind speeds of 6.5 m/s, the low-speed version of the N90/2500 has been used, Nordex says.

The operating company is Megawatt Baltika, a subsidiary of the Austrian-Spanish joint venture RP Global.

José Lozano, CFO at RP Global, said: “Tychowo is proof that renewable energy projects can be financed despite the extremely difficult conditions in the capital market as a result of the global economic crisis. We hope that the completion of Tychowo will also encourage other investors to step up their project activities in Poland.”
