LONDON — Seaway7, part of the Subsea7 Group, has been awarded a contract by Equinor and partner Polenergia 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.
Seaway7’s scope of work covers the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of 100 66kV inter-array cables, measuring about 200 km in length. The two projects will be delivered in continuous campaigns with offshore works expected to begin 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 companies said.
The wind farms, developed in the Polish exclusive economic zone of the Baltic Sea, will be located between 22 km and 37 km from the coast with water depths ranging from about 25 m to 40 m.
Subsea7 said the contract is worth between $150 million and $300 million.
