New wind farm set to be built by Polish TAURON

Fifteen wind turbines with a total capacity of 30 megawatts (MW) will be built in the Polish village of Warblewo, the Polish power distributor, TAURON, announced. This will be the company’s thirteenth wind investment, which “indicates the consistent implementation of TAURON’s Green Turn strategy”. The first electricity deliveries will flow from the Warblewo wind farm in less than 24 months.

“Our new farm will be able to power 28,000 households and is another step showing the consistent implementation of TAURON’s Green Turn,” said Paweł Szczeszek, President of the TAURON Group, Paweł Szczeszek. “Each green, renewable, environmentally neutral megawatt makes us independent of capricious, global fuel markets, which are still shaken by the effects of Russia’s attack on Ukraine.”

The Warblewo project, located in northern Poland (Pomeranian Voivodeship), will consist of 15 turbines, each with a capacity of 2 MW, with a total capacity of 30 MW. The project will begin in the coming weeks, with the first electricity expected to flow from the wind farm in the third quarter of 2024.

“The Wind Farm Act limits the dynamics of our development,+ added the President of the Management Board of TAURON Zielona Energia, Wojciech Więcławek. “The sooner the 10H Act is liberalised, the faster wind energy will develop in Poland. The great advantage of wind is that it is often complementary to the helioelectric power plant as a power source, for example, when there is no solar energy production, windmills will produce a lot of energy.”

Last week, the Polish government adopted a new amendment to the Draft “10H” Act, which will oblige wind farm investors to provide at least 10 per cent of installed capacity to the residents of the local authority where the wind farm is located.

The Warblewo project is being implemented by TAURON Zielona Energia (Green Energy), which is responsible for overseeing RES investments, project acquisitions, and conducting investment supervision over photovoltaic farms and onshore wind farms, in the TAURON Group.
