Spanish giant Iberdrola and Polish energy company Enea have abandoned plans to develop up to 3.3GW of offshore wind farms in the Polish Baltic Sea.

Enea announced the parties had terminated their exclusive talks about developing the project pipeline, in a note to the Warsaw Stock Exchange.

The two companies had agreed to explore the possibility of working together to gain entry to Poland’s nascent offshore wind sector in June 2020.

Enea stated that despite talks with Iberdrola breaking down, it would still actively continue to explore the opportunities for developing offshore wind farms.

It added that the two companies remain open to potential cooperation in the future.

Iberdrola declined to comment when contacted by Windpower Monthly.

Under a new draft energy plan, Poland aims to have 8-11GW of offshore wind capacity online by 2040, with 5.9GW operating by 2030.
