RWE Renewables expands its green portfolio in Poland

Leading global player in the renewable business RWE Group is continuing to expand its renewables portfolio in Poland, achieving commercial operation on its Nawrocko onshore wind farm near Stettin.

With about seven megawatts (MW), the site can supply the equivalent of up to 15,000 households with green power. The construction of the three Nordex wind turbines started about one year ago and was finally licensed in April. The 25 windmills with a total capacity of about 62 MW will be operated and maintained by the same RWE team.

RWE Renewables has already gained considerable experience in Poland and will operate about a dozen onshore wind farms here with a total capacity of approximately 380 MW. The latest addition to its renewables fleet underlines RWE’s growth ambitions in this country.

“Poland is an attractive market for the expansion of our business and I am happy about the tangible progress our team is making”, said Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath, CEO of RWE Renewables. “We are keen to support the growth of wind energy in Poland, one of our core markets in Europe. We will promote both onshore and offshore projects in the country.”

Last October, the company acquired a pipeline of up to four offshore wind projects in the central Polish Baltic Sea as part of its ambitions to enter the Polish offshore market and grow its offshore operations across Europe. Over the next few years, development activities will continue, and the construction phase might start as early as 2023.

“The Polish market promises the great untapped potential for offshore wind energy in Europe and now we have a promising pipeline with a total generation capacity of 1.8 gigawatts”, continued Mrs Dotzenrath. “We are fully committed to investing in offshore wind in Poland in light of its significant benefits for the Polish economy, labour market and society.”
