Polish Enea acquires 19.8 MW offshore wind farm project

Enea Nowa Energia, a subsidiary of Polish energy company Enea Group, has acquired 100 per cent of shares in Farma Wiatrowa Bejsce, a project company for an onshore wind farm with a capacity of 19.8 megawatts (MW) from Swedish renewables developer OX2 Holding Poland.

Located in the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship (south-eastern Poland) the farm is planned to be commissioned in 2025.

“The acquisition of the Bejsce wind farm is another renewable energy project developed by the Enea Group in recent weeks. As announced, we have started the process of dynamically increasing our production potential based on renewable energy sources, both in photovoltaics and wind. This is our contribution to the transformation of the energy sector, and the Group’s special purpose vehicles are implementing further projects for an additional several hundred MW of green energy,” said Paweł Majewski, President of Enea’s management board.

Once constructed, the wind farm will consist of six turbines, each with a capacity of 3.3 MW. Its annual energy production is expected to be approximately 65 gigawatt hours (GWh) which is equivalent to the annual electricity demand of 20,000 households, Enea said in a press release.

“The Bejsce wind farm, which will soon expand the assets of Enea Nowa Energia, is another investment supporting the goal of dynamic development of electricity generation in the Enea Group from renewable sources,” emphasised Wojciech Gąsowski, vice president for development of Enea Nowa Energia, acting president of the company’s management board.

As part of the acquisition agreement, Enea will cover the construction costs of the target installation which is expected to amount to a total of over 57.4 million euros including the cost of purchasing the project company itself at approximately three million euros.

“We are pleased to announce this transaction and look forward to the implementation of the Bejsce wind project. Poland is a very dynamic market and we will continue to develop our organisation and our project portfolio, thus contributing to driving the energy transition,” said Paul Stormoen, CEO of OX2.
