Suwałki Wind Park Nearing Completion

German energy corporation RWE is preparing to launch 18 new wind turbines as part of its Suwałki Wind Park project in northeastern Poland. Once operational, the wind farm will be one of the most modern facilities of its kind in Poland. In July, RWE finished work assembling the turbines using components brought to Poland from Denmark by sea.

After the Suwałki Wind Park starts working in a few months, it will increase the amount of wind power produced in Poland by around 10 percent over last year, RWE executives said.

"The output of the wind turbines will enable us to produce no less than 80 million kWh of electrical power annually," said Filip Thon, chairman of RWE Polska. "This is a sufficient amount to provide a town the size of Zakopane or larger with electricity over a whole year."

The wind farm will help cut carbon dioxide emissions in Poland by around 80,000 metric tons per year, according to RWE executives.

The Suwałki Wind Park is the first of a number of wind power projects that RWE has been carrying out in Poland. By 2015, the corporation plans to build wind farms with a total capacity of 300 megawatts in this country.

RWE's next wind power project in Poland will be a wind farm in Tychowo, West Pomerania province, scheduled for completion next year. The corporation plans to install 15 wind turbines there, each with a capacity of 2.3 megawatts.
