February 3 (Renewables Now) - Polish private energy company Polenergia SA (WSE:PEP) said it has launched its biggest onshore renewable energy project, the 121-MW Debsk Wind Farm, in Poland's east-central Masovian province.
The facility is the 11th onshore wind farm of Polenergia and will boost by 35% the group's portfolio of green assets to 472 MW, the company said on Wednesday.
The wind park consists of two arrays of 2-MW turbines -- 40 in the district of Zuromin and 15 in the Kluczbork-Osada. It is estimated to generate some 366 GWh a year, sufficient to meet the power demands of 183,000 households and to offset 318,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere.
The turbines were supplied by Denmark's Vestas, which will also provide maintenance services for a period of 30 years. The construction of the foundations, platforms and the road infrastructure was carried out by Polish builder Erbud and its renewables unit Onde.
In 2019, the Debsk Wind Farm was awarded a contract for difference as part of the auction system, which guarantees it support for part of its production.
