December 23 (Renewables Now) - Spanish developer Elawan Energy has secured a 15-year contract to sell electricity from 36 MW of new wind farms in Poland’s recent renewables auction.
The capacity is divided between four projects with the total investment reaching EUR 34 million (USD 37.7m).
The company said it would build two 6-MW wind farms and two of 20 MW and 4 MW, respectively, in different regions of Poland. Their combined annual production is expected to hit 100 GWh.
Elawan has a deadline of almost three years to commission the wind farms but said it expects to have them up and running in 2021.
Elawan Energy country manager in Poland, Jaime Poves, said the company has a portfolio of more wind and solar projects it plans to realise in the coming years with support from similar power auctions.
The Spanish developer has been present in Poland for more than eight years, operating 10 MW of wind and 0.5 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) power, according to the company.
