Danish renewables developer European Energy A/S said on Friday that it has hooked to the grid its 44.7-MW Pomerania wind farm portfolio in northwestern Poland.
Pomerania is formed by five wind farms ranging from 5.25 MW to 19.25 MW. Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) and General Electric Co (NYSE:GE) supplied the turbines for the projects.
European Energy invested a total of EUR 73.15 million (USD 73.2m) in the effort. Earlier this year, the company obtained EUR 53.5 million in project finance from German lender Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale (NORD/LB) and Denmark’s export credit agency EKF.
The Pomerania wind farms will generate around 145 GWh per year. Following their connection to the grid, European Energy raised its total installed wind power capacity in Poland to 59.7 MW, the Danish firm added.
