Swedish wind project developer Renewable Energy will this year build a 10.2 MW wind plant in Poland together with Airtrends International, also of Sweden. The project, being built near Gdansk on a site known as Lieswo 1, will consist of 17 Enercon E44 600 kW turbines from Germany. It is due for completion in the autumn, with the output going to Gdansk Energy, a state owned regional utility. Renewable Energy will manage the project and provide consultancy services worth SEK 500,000 during the construction phase. The company's Jerry Schön says the project could eventually see another 25 larger turbines rated at 1.5 MW installed at Lieswo 1. The growing Polish market, he adds, offers exciting opportunities for wind power and Renewable Energy is planning a further 120 MW of wind plant in the country.
