Polenergia to build largest wind farm in Poland

Largest Polish private and vertically integrated energy group Polenergia has launched the construction of the Dębsk Wind Farm with a capacity of 121 megawatts (MW). The record investment in the Group’s history is going to guarantee an almost 50 per cent increase of power in the onshore wind farm segment.

Performance of the project will take up two years and the recipients will receive electric current for the first time in the middle of 2022.

“Within mere eight weeks from the announcement of the new strategy of Polenergia, we have accomplished another milestone related to its’ implementation,” said Michał Michalski, President of the Management Board of Polenergia. “In spite of the adverse macro-economic conditions we have been working on our projects in an uninterrupted mode. In line with the schedule, we are signing key contracts and accomplishing financial closure for the largest project in the Group’s history: the Dębsk Wind Farm with the capacity of 121 MW. Together with the investment in Szymankowo which is underway, with the capacity of 38 MW, we are implementing a programme to increase the new capacity of onshore wind farms already by 159 MW, which is a significant step on the road to fulfilment of the strategic goal until 2024.”

The positive attitude of the banks to the financing of RES investments and high evaluation of Polenergia as a business partner are of key significance for the performance of all new projects of the Company.

Performance of the Dębsk Wind Farm is yet another significant step in Polish green transformation. The estimated annual production of the Dębsk Wind Farm will approximate 366 gigawatts per hour (GWh), which correspondents to electricity demand of 183,000 households. Thanks to the project, it will be possible to avoid emission on pollution on a level amounting to as much as 318,000 tons of CO2.
