Nearly €5bn worth of power generation capacity under construction in Poland

When February started, the Opole construction scheme (investor: PGE, capacity: 1,800 MWe) became the largest project under construction in Poland. Other major projects in progress include the construction of a coal-fired unit at the Kozienice power plant (Enea, 1,000 MWe) and the development of gas-fired units at the facilities in Stalowa Wola (Tauron, 400 MWe) and Wloclawek (PKN Orlen, 463 MWe). In addition, there are several medium-sized power units in the construction phase, including projects in Gorzow Wielkopolski (PGE, PLN 700m), Tychy (Tauron, PLN 600m) and Jastrzebie Zdroj (Spolka Energetyczna Jastrzebie, PLN 500m). Therefore, the power construction sector has witnessed a strong upturn, especially that a mere PLN 2.5bn (€600m) worth of projects were underway less than two years ago.
Furthermore, the aggregate value of projects in the advanced tender phase is PLN 32bn (€7.6bn). Here the largest initiative is the Polnoc Power Plant construction, whose value is estimated at PLN 12bn (€2.9bn), though its future is still uncertain. The largest projects in the tender phase that are the closest to commencing construction are: the construction of coal-fired units at Jaworzno Power Plant (Tauron, 900 MWe) and Turow Power Plant (PGE, 460 MWe), the construction of gas-fired units in Grudziadz (Energa, 420-600 MWe), Pulawy (Grupa Azoty and PGE, 800-900 MWe), and projects involving the construction of smaller units in Bydgoszcz, Szczecin and Plock.
