Energa Group, now part of Polish oil refiner and petrol retailer PKN ORLEN, launched one of the largest wind farms in Poland.
Thanks to the investment, the share of renewable sources in Energa’s installed capacity will increase up to 39 per cent and the volume of energy produced from wind is likely to exceed 500 gigawatts per hour (GWh) by the end of 2021.
“The takeover of Energa by the ORLEN Group was in this context extremely important, accelerating the implementation of both entities’ strategic objectives in the area of low- and zero-emission energy generation capacities,” said PKN Orlen CEO Daniel Obajtek.
He also noted how this experience will also be very important in the light of the offshore wind farm project planned by the ORLEN Group in the Baltic Sea.
“The company systematically increases the share of renewable sources in its resources, having a large, diversified portfolio of assets and long-term investment plans”, said Energa’s President Jacek Goliñski.
In 2019, the total share of renewable energy sources in the Energa Group’s production mix was about 38 per cent, 7 per cent higher compared to the previous year. A large share in this result was thanks to the increase in production from wind farms, which generated 447 GWh, 16 per cent more compared to 2018.
