The project involves the construction of 22 wind turbines, each with an output of 2.05 megawatts (MW), around the municipality of Legnickie Pole. Now operational, the wind farm has a capacity of 45.1 MW – and is expected to produce yearly 115 510 MW from wind energy.

The infrastructure elements of the project consist of: purchasing and erecting wind turbines; constructing the foundations; building access roads and vehicle circulation areas; erecting a transformer and switcher station; and equipping the infrastructure with an energy and telecommunications network.

Paving the way towards renewable energy targets and job creation

The project contributes to the achievement of the binding targets contained in the Renewable Energy Directive, which requires Poland to reach the target of 15 % of renewable energy sources in its gross final energy consumption by 2020. Furthermore,194 jobs have been created since its completion.

Total investment and EU funding

Total investment for the project "Construction of 22 wind farms of a total power of 45.1 MW in Legnickie Pole municipality" is EUR 71 143 449, of which the EU’s Cohesion Fund is contributing EUR 9 802 207 from the Operational Programme “Infrastructure and Environment” for the 2007 to 2013 programming period. Work falls under priority axis "Environmentally friendly energy infrastructure and energy efficiency."
