Renewable energy company EDP Renovaveis SA (ELI:EDPR) on Thursday inaugurated the 70-MW Budzyn wind park in western Poland.
The plant features 35 turbines of 2 MW each which were installed gradually.
Budzyn was built in four phases, with the first 40 MW connected to the grid at the end of April 2022, followed by 20 MW at the end of August. The remaining 10 MW are set to go online at the end of this month.
The wind park is expected to generate enough clean electricity to supply more than 85,000 local homes and offset over 215,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.
With Budzyn, EDPR has 270 MW of total installed capacity in the Greater Poland Voivodeship, including a 120-MW wind farm in Margonin and another wind farm of 80 MW in Pawłowo-Golancz.
Overall, the company firm has deployed more than 800 MW of green energy capacity in Poland since its entry into the country in 2008.
