In the first half of 2026, a production facility will begin operations in the Szczecin harbour, producing structural components (towers and foundations) for offshore and onshore wind turbines. The manufactured components will be transported using, among other things, sea transport.
The lease agreement for port areas has just been signed by the Szczecin and Świnoujście Seaports Authority and the leader in the offshore industry, the Spanish company Windar Renovables, operating in Poland through its subsidiary Windar Polska spółka z o.o. Earlier in October last year, the contractors in this case signed a preliminary lease agreement.
The production plant will be built on an approximately seventeen-hectare property located in the area of the Dębicki Canal in the Szczecin port. Ultimately, it will employ a total of over 400 people. The value of the investment from the Spanish company will be approximately EUR 70 million.
It was already less than two years ago that BalticWind.EU reported on Windar Renovables’ plans in Poland.
This investment reinforces Windar renovables’ position as a global leader in clean and sustainable energy through the production of towers and support structures for offshore wind energy. This new international factory will enable Windar to increase its global presence and production capacity, following the successful development of previous investments in other tower factories abroad, such as India (2011), Brazil (2013), Mexico (2016), Russia (2018), in addition to the other 6 factories that the Spanish company has managed in Spain since its foundation in 2007.
Windar renovables, together with its strategic partner Navantia, is also actively involved in the production of substructures for offshore wind energy (jackets, monopiles and floating). The two companies have jointly developed up to seven projects in the last seven years and are currently involved in several tenders for projects to be realised by 2025.
After the installation terminal for offshore wind farms in the seaport of Świnoujście, this is the next project in the port complex of Szczecin and Świnoujście related to the production of energy from renewable sources, which will be developed in cooperation with Szczecin and Swinoujscie Seaports Authority SA.
