In addition, it had a 10% share in projects that won RES auctions in 2019, in the construction of solar farms up to 1 MW (based on data from RES auctions).
ONDE has been operating on the RES market for years. The company has completed and is implementing 250 projects with a total capacity of 2,809.5 MW. The vast majority of power is allocated to wind farm projects and the rest to solar farm projects.
At the end of the first quarter of this year, ONDE had contracted executive projects worth PLN 1 billion and secured an investment pipeline with a total target capacity of 458 MW in projects in the wind and photovoltaic sector, which the company will implement on its own account.
Importantly, ONDE belongs to the Erbud Group. It has been listed on the stock exchange since 2007. It has over 30 years of experience in the construction market in Poland and Western Europe.

Funds obtained from the issue of new shares in the maximum amount of approx. PLN 214.5 million gross. will be allocated to the further expansion of the portfolio of wind and photovoltaic projects and their development.

“Our strategy assumes that the money invested in this way will allow us to rapidly develop a new business. It will also make the cash return to the company quickly and it will be reinvested in further projects. Such an accelerated start is very important because the full development of a RES project takes up to two years, ”explains Paweł Średniawa, president of ONDE.
The public offering will offer new issue shares and shares owned by the current shareholders. The value of the entire offer will amount to PLN 444.5 million.
