One of Poland’s largest wind farms has been constructed in the northern Pomerania region. The project, completed at the end of October, cost over zl.227 million.

The investor, supplier of equipment and owner of the wind farm is Spanish green power giant Gamesa. The company is a global leader in the production of wind turbines. It has built wind farms with a total capacity of 22,000 MW in 30 countries on four continents.

The Polish farm is located in the village of Lignowy near the town of Pelplin. It is composed of 24 wind turbines with a capacity of 2 MW each and will generate 13,000 MW of electricity annually. This is equivalent to the average amount consumed annually by 2,600 households. The farm will prevent around 96,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being emitted to the atmosphere. Around 10 million euros was provided for the project from the EU’s Cohesion Fund. The rest of the funding came from loans by Spanish banks.

“Tests are now under way to prepare the farm for the smooth transmission of electricity to the grid,” says Ewa Urbanowska, managing director at Gamesa Energia Polska Sp. z o.o. “The customer will be the Energa Group. We have also signed a contract to sell the farm to Polska Grupa Energetyczna. It will take it over next year.”
