November 22 (Renewables Now) - German energy company Innogy SE (ETR:IGY) today confirmed it has won 85.2 MW of capacity in Poland’s latest tender for renewable energy projects.

The awards are for the 33-MW Zukowice wind farm in Lower Silesia and the 52.2-MW Dolice plant in Western Pomerania. They were secured in a tender for onshore wind and photovoltaic (PV) installations above 1 MW, which resulted in weighted average bids of PLN 196.17 (USD 51.96/EUR 45.55) per MWh. This was the first time that Poland tenders large-scale onshore wind installations, according to the statement.

Innogy said it expects to take final investment decisions for the two projects at the start of next year. The German group already has eight onshore wind parks in Poland with a combined capacity exceeding 240 MW.

At present, Poland’s installed wind power capacity stands at nearly 6 GW. The country aims to source at least 15% of its overall power from renewables by 2020.
