innogy SE has started building the Dolice wind farm, Poland. Innogy was awarded the contract for the 47.5 MW project in West Pomerania at the Polish onshore wind auction for large plants in November 2018.
The 19 wind turbines (SG 2.5-114) from Siemens Gamesa are scheduled to go into operation at the end of 2020. At the same time, innogy is building the Zukowice onshore wind farm with a capacity of 33 MW in Lower Silesia, Poland. Commissioning of the Nordex Group's eleven wind turbines is planned for June 2020. innogy is investing a total of around €101 million in both Polish projects.
Poland is an important core market for innogy. The company operates eight onshore wind farms with a total installed capacity of over 240 MW. The wind farms are located in four regions: Nowy Staw near Gdansk, Opalenica in the Poznan region and Krzecin and Tychowo in West Pomerania. The Suwalki, Piecki and Taciewo wind farms are in close proximity in Podlaskie in north-eastern Poland.
In addition to the onshore wind activities, innogy has diversified its renewables portfolio by successfully entering into the Polish solar market. After Stawiec, innogy's first Polish photovoltaic project, the energy company has won up to a tender for Polish renewable energy projects with up to 1 MW. The company is also a step closer to the realisation of 42 further open space solar systems.
