PNE has completed construction of the 132MW Jasna wind farm in Poland, which will be one of the country’s biggest when operational.
WKN, which is part of PNE, carried out the construction management of the facility which is now in the testing and commissioning phase.
This phase will be completed in the coming months, once all remaining necessary permits for use and concessions have been obtained.
The wind farm comprises 39 turbines, 22 of which are of the Vestas V126 type each with a 3.45MW capacity and 17 of which are the Vestas V126 type each with a 3.3MW capacity.
The project has a 70 km connection route to the transformer station, which crosses two rivers, the Vistula and the Nogat.
As part of the 110 kV high-voltage transmission line, about 250 boreholes had to be excavated, with the longest, at almost 1.5 km, running beneath the Vistula river.
The project was developed together with Polish WKN subsidiary Sevivon.
The wind farm was sold in 2019 to Stadtwerke Munchen as “ready for construction”.
In March 2020 PNE completed the 42MW Barwice wind farm in Poland.
Three further Polish projects with a total capacity of 94.8MW were awarded contracts in tenders at the end of 2019.
Two of these projects are already under construction.
PNE CEO Markus Lesser said: “I am pleased that we were able to complete the project on schedule despite the current difficult situation due to Covid-19.
“Poland has become an important market for us, which we will continue to expand in the future.”
