(WO) – Equinor, in partnership with Polenergia, awarded Seaway7, part of the Subsea7 Group, a substantial contract for the inter-array cables of the MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III bottom-fixed offshore wind projects, in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea. According to a company statement, the contract is valued between $150 million and $300 million.
Seaway7’s scope of work covers the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of 100 66kV inter-array cables, measuring approximately 200 km in length. The two projects will be delivered in continuous campaigns with offshore works expected to commence in 2026.
MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III, a 50:50 joint venture between Equinor and Polenergia, are two of the largest and most advanced offshore wind farms being developed in Poland, with a total installed capacity of 1.44 GW.
The wind farms, developed in the Polish exclusive economic zone of the Baltic Sea, will be located between 22 and 37 km from the coast with water depths ranging from around 25 to 40 m.
Stuart Fitzgerald, CEO Seaway7, said, “This is Seaway7’s first contract in Poland, a new and emerging market for offshore wind. We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with Equinor and supporting them on their energy transition journey with this project, our sixth offshore wind project together”.
