Seaway7 bags inter-array cable contract offshore Poland
Seaway7, part of the Subsea7 Group, has been awarded a contract by Equinor and Polenergia for the inter-array cables of the MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III offshore wind projects in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea.
Seaway7’s scope of work includes the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) of 100 66 kV inter-array cables, measuring approximately 200 kilometers in length.
The two projects will be delivered in continuous campaigns with offshore works expected to commence in 2026.
The deal is worth between $150 million and $300 million, as per Subsea7’s definition of a substantial contract.
“We are very pleased to have been selected to supply the full inter-array cables scope for these significant wind farms in the Baltic region. 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,” said Stuart Fitzgerald, CEO of Seaway7.
Polenergia and Equinor are jointly developing the MFW Bałtyk II and MFW Bałtyk III offshore wind farms with a combined capacity of 1,440 MW.
Recently, a consortium of Jan De Nul Group and Hellenic Cables won the contract to design, manufacture, transport, and install a package of four 220 kV HVAC export cables to connect the two projects in the Polish Baltic Sea to shore.
