Strengthening onshore wind supply chain

Poland: A team from Iberdrola has paid a visit to ZREW transformer factory in Lodz to supervise progress in the manufacturing of a 30/110 kV, 63 MVA power transformer.

The transformer will service Korytnica II onshore wind farm.

ZREW, part of R&S group, is one of Poland’s leading manufacturers of oil-immersed transformers for power stations, heat and power plants, wind farms, distribution networks as well as special transformers for industrial applications.

Construction of Korytnica II onshore wind project (50.5 MW) began in June 2022 by CJR Polska, the wind farm’s EPC provider, with commissioning expected in 2023.

CJR Polska awarded the construction of the substation to Polish electrical subcontractor P&Q. Under this framework, R&S ZREW is set to deliver a 30/110 kV, 63 MVA power transformer which will be installed as part of the extension of the existing 30/110 kV step-up substation, where the wind farm will be connected to.

“The best way to tackle the climate and energy crisis is to accelerate the transition to renewables, stepping up investments to revitalise economic activity and job creation. Working with local suppliers not only taps local talent and skills aimed at creating strong, sustainable, local supply chains but it also benefits the economic and social wellbeing of the communities we serve. In ZREW we have found a solid, reliable partner and we look forward to working together as we deliver new projects,” said Alejandro Rodríguez, Iberdrola Renewables (Onshore) Country Manager in Poland.

Iberdrola is expanding its presence in Poland, a key growth market for the company, where it already operates Zopowy (30 MW) and Korytnica I (82.5 MW) onshore wind farms and has plans to increase its renewable energy capacity to 261 MW by 2023.
