Ignitis Group has reached a significant point of development for Pomerania wind farm with the final wind turbine installed.
Turbines installation was initiated in the middle of May in one of the largest wind farms in Poland.
The Pomerania wind farm, which is the first Ignitis Groups’ project of its kind in Poland, comprises 29 wind turbines with a nominal capacity of approximately 3–3.3 MW.
“Completion of Pomerania wind farm is another important step towards the decarbonization of the Poland energy system. It is also exceptionally important to Ignitis Group because it will increase the green generation portfolio of the Group and strengthen the company’s position in the growing renewable energy sector of the neighboring country.”Darius Maikštėnas, chairman of the board and CEO of Ignitis Group.
It is estimated that the Pomerania wind farm will start operating at full capacity (94 MW) beginning from spring of 2021, when the turbine connection to the grid and other unfinished works are complete.
The total annual generated electricity will amount to 300 GWh, which will power around 160,000 households every year with clean energy.
Planned investments to the project is estimated at about €127 million.
