Essen, 9 January 2024

The onshore team has done a good job: All 16 wind turbines at the Znin wind farm in Poland have been erected and the rotor blades are turning. In just 17 months, RWE has successfully connected its 20th onshore wind farm to the grid. The wind farm is located in Kujawsko-Pomorskie, about 260 kilometres east of Szczecin, and has an installed capacity of 48 megawatts (MW).

Each wind turbine in ?nin has a rated output of 3 MW. They produce enough green electricity to meet the calculated annual demand of up to 77,000 Polish households. Even before the start of construction, RWE had been awarded a contract by the Polish government for a bilateral contract for difference (CfD) with a term of 15 years. This protects RWE as an investor against a drop in prices, while at the same time consumers are protected against price increases.

Katja Wünschel, CEO RWE Renewables Europe & Australia: “The commissioning of our 20th wind farm shows that RWE is growing steadily in Poland - one of our core markets - and that we are investing there for the long term. We are focusing on all important renewable technologies and are also massively expanding our portfolio in the field of photovoltaics. Close cooperation with the surrounding communities and long-term cooperation with local partners are particularly important to us, especially in the regional wind and solar business.”

As one of the world’s leading companies in the field of renewable energies, RWE is resolutely pushing ahead with its portfolio expansion in Poland. The commissioning of ?nin brings the company's installed onshore capacity in Poland to over 540 MW.
