New wind farm to boost shift to renewable energy
Twenty-four new wind turbines being constructed in the Pomorskie province of Poland will significantly contribute to a greater use of renewable energy in the region. The investment will bring environmental benefits, as well as improving the security of the region’s energy supply.
The project aims at constructing 24 wind turbines in Pelplin, with an output of 2 MW each, altogether with a capacity of 48 MW. The turbines are expected to produce yearly 109 584 MWh/net from wind energy.
The project is not only about purchasing and erecting the turbines. Indeed, other steps include: building a subscriber station as the main collection point (MCP) for the Pelplin wind farm; building an electrical power connection to distribute the energy produced; linking the subscriber transformer and the MCP to the wind farm with cables; and creating access infrastructure and earth works.
Combining green energy and job creation
This project will decrease the impact of the energy sector on the environment, contribute to the increase of renewable energy sources in the Polish energy mix, limit greenhouse gas emissions, and reduce dependency on imported energy. Furthermore, twelve jobs were created for the duration of this project, and eleven upon completion.
Total investment and EU funding
