Gamesa sells Polish wind farm to RWE Innogy

Gamesa has announced the sale of a 32-MW wind farm in Poland to Germany’s RWE Innogy The site, developed and built by Gamesa’s wind farm division, is equipped with 16 Gamesa G90-2.0 MW turbines.

RWE Innogy, the renewable energy unit of RWE which is one of Europe’s five leading electricity and gas companies, has reached an agreement with the wind turbine manufacturer and wind farm developer Gamesa to acquire the Piecki wind farm in northeast Poland. RWE Innogy will acquire the 32-MW wind farm in a joint deal with HSE Regenerativ. The sale price of the wind farm has not been revealed.

Gamesa calculates that the wind farm will produce enough electricity to meet the equivalent demand of over 30,000 residential households per year and to avoid 60,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.

Gamesa’s wind farm division has a portfolio of wind farm projects in Poland totalling 706 MW at varying stages of development, of which 78 MW are currently under construction. Gamesa plans to break ground on a further 108 MW of wind farm capacity in Poland in 2011. In other East European countries, including Romania and Bulgaria, the company manages a total portfolio of more than 1,000 MW.

For its part, RWE Innogy pools the renewable energy expertise and power plants of the RWE Group. The company plans, builds and operates facilities generating power from renewable energies and aims to vigorously grow renewable energies in Europe.

While onshore and offshore wind power projects are a focus of the company's activities, it reveals that it also plans to expand into biomass and hydroelectric power and push ahead with the development of new technologies such as biogas, wave and tidal energy and solar thermal power in the future.
