Invenergy Wind LLC (Invenergy) and Polish development company Enerco sp. z o.o. (Enerco), are collaborating to develop nine wind energy generation projects in the region in and around Darlowo, near the Baltic Sea.
GE provided 32 wind turbines for Darlowo—Phase One, which was fully commissioned in March 2011 and today produces 80 megawatts of power. Darlowo—Phase One is comprised of the Weikowice, Jezyce and Dobiesław projects.
Darlowo—Phase Two, comprised of the Boryszewo, Krupy, Stary Jarosław and Nowy Jarosław facilities, will bring the total installed capacity of wind energy in the Darłowo area to 175 megawatts.
Darlowo—Phase Three will consist of two additional projects—Gorzyca and Pekanino—which currently are under contract. These sites will boost the aggregate output of the nine Darlowo projects to 250 megawatts.
“The Darlowo Wind Energy Center is a wonderful example of Poland embracing the economic and environmental benefits of its wind energy resources,” said Michael Polsky, president and chief executive officer of Invenergy. “Wind energy is playing an increasingly important role in helping Poland meet its commitments to the European Union with regard to green energy generation.”
