Energa launched Wielbark and Gryf photovoltaic farms with a total capacity of 87 MW

Energa Wytwarzanie – a subsidiary of Energa from the PKN Orlen Group – launched photovoltaic farms PV Wielbark (Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship) with a capacity of 62 MW and PV Gryf (Wielkopolskie Voivodeship) with a capacity of 25 MW, built at a total cost of approx. PLN 260 million.

By the end of this year, the farm in Wielbark will be expanded and its capacity will increase to 70 MW. In turn, next year, in the vicinity of the Gryf farm, further photovoltaic installations with a total capacity of approx. 68 MW will be built, Energa announced.

“This year we will commission photovoltaic farms with a total capacity of 110 MW, next year with a capacity of 60 MW, and in the following years the investments will reach hundreds of megawatts,” said Daniel Obajtek, President of PKN Orlen during the launch of the PV Wielbark farm.

As he emphasized, last year the Orlen Group produced four times more clean energy in photovoltaic installations than in the previous year. Thanks to new investments, this scale will increase. Already, the installed capacity in photovoltaics reaches approx. 97 MW, and the implementation of subsequent projects will significantly increase it.

The PV Wielbark photovoltaic farm consists of a total of approx. 150 thousand. panels with a unit power of up to 530 W. The installation is operated by over 300 inverters, and the investment value is approx. PLN 200 million. The installation was built on an area of 119 ha, on soils of one of the lowest classes. Construction works were carried out in the second half of 2022, when the first panels with a total capacity of approx. 12 MW were connected to the power grid. In order to launch the remaining ones, it was necessary to modernize the nearby Main Power Supply Point – GPZ Wielbark, which was carried out by Energa Operator. By the end of 2023, the installed capacity of the farm in Wielbark will increase by an additional 8 MW and will amount to 70 MW in total. Another 15,000 will be installed on approx. 10 hectares. panels and 19 inverters.
