RWE’s fourth Polish wind farm goes on line

RWE Innogy (FWB:à‚ RWE) has taken its installed wind capacity in Poland to 122 MW with the commissioning of an onshore project built by Spain’s Gamesa.

And the company has a target of 300 MW by 2015 according to its chief executive Hans Bunting.

The 14 MW Krzecin wind farm is in the Western-Pomerania district and went on line yesterday.

Wind powerBunting said: “Onshore wind power makes a significant contribution to the expansion of renewable energies in Poland, not least as a result of the excellent wind power locations and the attractive business environment.”

He added: “We want to invest in the expansion of wind energy in Poland, operating some 300 megawatts of capacity by 2015. Krzecin will take us a big step forward in helping us to achieve this expansion target.”

Krzecin comprises seven Gamesa G90-2.0 MW wind turbines. These generate 2 MW of electricity each and have a hub height of 100 metres with a rotor diameter of 90 metres.

RWE Innogy now operates four onshore wind farms in Poland and a fifth, with a capacity of 39 MW, is under construction and is due to be operational by the beginning of 2013.
