August 17 (Renewables Now) - Portuguese renewables company Greenvolt - Energias Renovaveis SA (ELI:GVOLT) announced today that its subsidiary V-Ridium is commencing construction of 50-MW of wind parks in Poland.

The 15.4-MW Podlasek and the 34.5-MW Wolka Dobrynska were secured in the country’s third energy auction. Greenvolt expects the parks to begin power generation by end-2022.

Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) was selected as the turbine supplier. The company will maintain the equipment for a period of 30 years, Greenvolt said in the press release.
