June 30 (Renewables Now) - RWE AG (ETR:RWE) said today it has broken the ground on a 48-MW wind farm in north-central Poland which is expected to supply up to 77,000 households with green electricity.
The German energy major will now begin the work to prepare the infrastructure, such as path work and the pouring of the foundations. The 16 wind turbines will be installed near the town of Znin in the Kujawsko-Pomorskie province at the beginning of 2023. The commissioning of the plant is scheduled for the last quarter of 2023.
The wind park is RWE's 17th wind project in Poland and the power group has secured a contract for difference (CfD) for it.
The begin of construction of the Znin wind park comes only a few weeks after RWE put the 16.8-MW Rozdrazew wind farm into operation. Another wind project with a capacity of 7 MW in western Poland is currently under construction while the 48-MW Dolice project and the 12-MW Lech Nowy Staw III developments are awaiting permits.
The German group is also preparing to start building the 350-MW F.E.W. Baltic II project off the Polish coast.
