Iberdrola Ingenieria starts up 82 MW wind farm in Marszewo, Poland

Iberdrola Ingeniería has started up the Marszewo wind farm in North-West Poland after successfully completing a €135 million contract.
This installation is the twelfth that the company has built in this country. It is located in the village of Marszewo, in Postomino commune, West Pomeranian Voivodeship.
Iberdrola Ingeniería commenced the work of constructing this wind farm in August 2012 via its Polish subsidiary and the final acceptance for completion of the project was awarded in October of this year.
This new facility built for the Polish firm Tauron Ekoenergia reinforces the leadership of IBERDROLA’s engineering subsidiary in the development of wind farms in Poland, where it has commissioned facilities with a combined capacity of over 480 MW to date.[sam_block id=”10″ name=”Banner central 728x90px”]
The Marszewo wind farm has an installed capacity of 82 megawatts, which means it will be able to supply renewable energy to over 90,000 Polish households and avoid the emission of some 350,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere each year.
The wind farm is equipped with 41 wind turbines:
19 Vestas V90 model turbines, which have a unit capacity of 2 MW and stand 95 metres tall.
22 Vestas V80 model turbines, which also have a unit capacity of 2 MW and stand 60, 67, 78 or 100 metres tall.
The launch of this project was a major socio-economic boost to the local area, with over 250 workers being hired during the construction stage. The commissioning of the Marszewo wind farm consolidates Iberdrola Ingeniería as the most international firm in the wind engineering sector. The company is currently involved in wind power projects in countries such as the U.S., Honduras, Brazil, Kenya and South Africa.
