RWE Innogy has bought the Polish wind farm Taciewo from the Spanish manufacturer and developer Gamesa. Located in the north-east of the country, Taciewo's 15 turbines have an installed capacity of 30 MW. This raises the Polish wind portfolio of the German energy provider to a total capacity of 152 MW.

"With Taciewo and 152 MW, we have now reached the half-way point of our expansion goals in Poland. Thanks to the excellent Polish wind locations we are on a good track, and we want to continue investing here. Our wind farm Nowy Staw, with a capacity of 39 MW, is currently under construction. It should go online in early 2013", explained Hans Bünting, CEO of RWE Innogy.

Taciewo is projected to generate over 65,000 MWh of electricity annually. The installed turbines are of the type Gamesa G90-2.0 MW. They have a rotor diameter of 90 m and a hub height of 78 m. Taciewo is right next to the 32 MW wind farm Piecki, which RWE Innogy put into operation in 2010.

In total, RWE Innogy now operates five wind farms in Poland: Suwalki, with over 41 MW, has been connected to the grid since 2009, followed by Tychowo (35 MW), Piecki (32 MW), Krzecin (14 MW) and now Taciewo.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
