The European Investment Bank (EIB) and LBBW are providing PLN 184 million (approximately € 42 million) each to finance the construction and operation of four wind farms in Poland’s Wielkopolskie region.
The wind farms will be developed by German wpd AG in Jarocin Kozmin, Jarocin Wschod, Krotoszyn and Slupca Kolaczkowo near Poznan. They will have a total installed capacity of 102.5 MW, which enables them to power more than 60,000 households at peak times.
The projects were awarded to wpd in an auction in November 2018. Currently 35 of 38 wind turbines have been installed in the wind farms. Despite the adverse effects of the COVID 19 pandemic, thel project remains fully on schedule and all projects will be fully operational in the fourth quarter of 2020.
