Wpd Europe GmbH, part of German renewables developer Wpd AG, will be selling electricity to ENGIE Zielona Energia from 87.5 MW of onshore wind parks in Poland.
The power purchase agreement (PPA) with the unit of French energy group Engie (EPA:ENGI) covers the entire output of two wind farms -- the Jarocin-Kozmin and Slupca-Kolaczkowo in Wielkopolskie voivodeship, central Poland. Both projects entered construction in the first quarter of 2020. The commissioning of the first turbines is planned for the third quarter of this year, Wpd said on Monday.
The German firm will supply more than 900 GWh of electricity to its client during the contracted period.
The larger plant, Slupca-Kolaczkowo, will use 15 units of Vestas Wind Systems (CPH:VWS) 3.0-117 machines and will have a total capacity of 45 MW. Its turbines will be capable of producing enough electricity to supply about 100,000 homes per year, once operational. The 42.5-MW Jarocin-Kozmin solar farm will be equipped with 17 turbines of 2.5 MW by General Electric (NYSE:GE).
“WPD is ready for more cooperations of this kind to further support the energy turnaround,” said Wilko Smidt, responsible for PPAs at Wpd onshore.
ENGIE Zielona Energia owns and operates wind and solar capacity in Poland and sells electricity and natural gas to business customers.
