Siemens Gamesa has received an order of 42 MW for a project in Barwice in north-western Poland. The manufacturer will supply 14 wind turbines with a per unit effect of 3 MW and has furthermore been awarded a 20-year service contract by project developer Wirtgen Invest Energy, a subsidy of German WINRG. The turbines are expected to enter operation by January 2020, informs Siemens Gamesa in a press release, writes Polish media Biznes Alert.

The turbines will be produced in Denmark, the manufacturer notes.
