Navantia Seanergies-Windar to Build 77 XXL Monopiles For The Baltica 2 Offshore Wind Farm in Poland



Ørsted and PGE have signed a contract with Navantia Seanergies and Windar to manufacture 77 monopiles for Baltica 2, a 1.5 GW offshore wind farm which Ørsted and PGE will develop and operate together in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea. Ørsted is the global leader in offshore wind, and PGE is Poland’s largest electricity provider.

This is the third order of this type of foundation for Navantia-Windar and the largest to date. The agreement involves the consolidation of Spanish manufacturers as global suppliers and reference partners for major global developers.

The order will generate about 450 jobs between Navantia, Windar and collaborating industry in the factory located in Fene (A Coruña). The monopiles, four of which are intended for substation and the rest for wind turbines, will be over 100 metres long, weigh 2,000 tonnes or more, and have a diameter of more than 11 metres.

When launched by end of 2027, the park in which the monopiles will be installed will have a generating capacity of approx. 1.5 GW.

Orsted, a world leader in the development and construction of offshore wind farms, pioneered offshore wind in 1991 with the construction of the world’s first offshore wind farm in Denmark Today, Ørsted develops, builds and operates wind and solar farms across Europe, the United States and Asia-Pacific.

“This agreement with a world-class developer, places Navantia Seanergies as a leading player in the field of marine wind energy. It consolidates our commitment with Windar for this new product, the XXL monopile, and strengthens our position as a global supplier. We are proud to be able to contribute to the development of renewables in Europe”, said Navantia President, Ricardo Domínguez.

For Orlando Alonso, Executive Chairman of Windar Renovables, “this order placed by Orsted confirms our forecasts that we expect a significant activity growth in the industry, for which Windar is strengthening its corporate structure and working to increase its capabilities so that we can improve the high standards of quality and manufacturing performance that we already offer to our customers”.

“Offshore wind has great potential for Spain, not only as a source of homegrown green energy at large scale, but also as an industry that creates local jobs and global export opportunities for Spanish suppliers such as as Navantia Seanergies-Windar who have established themselves a supplier of monopile foundations for offshore wind farms”, says Marianne Back Hassl, Market Manager Offshore Wind Iberia.
