- Donaboròw wind farm (19.8 MW) produces green electricity for nearly 15,000 households
- Aquila Capital operates the nine Siemens Gamesa turbines
For the first time ABO Wind has connected a wind farm in Poland to the grid. The nine Siemens Gamesa SG114 turbines have a total output of 20 megawatts and supply as much green electricity as around 15,000 households consume. In addition, the wind turbines avoid the emission of more than 34,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. The Donaboròw wind farm is located in the southern part of the Wielkopolska province, in the areas of the two municipalities of Baranów and Kępno.
"We are proud to have reached this milestone and to make a tangible contribution to Poland’s energy transition", says Junior Project Manager Aleksandra Szkudlarek. “Thanks to the close and fruitful cooperation with the General Contractor ONDE, as well as all interested parties, we built the wind farm quickly and on schedule."
The Majority of the green electricity produced, will be sold via long term Power Purchase Agreement. The wind farm is now managed by Aquila Capital, a sustainability-focused investment and asset development company based in Hamburg.
ABO Wind has been active in Poland since 2017. The head office is located in Lodz. 14 ABO Wind employees are currently working in Poland on wind, solar and battery projects with a capacity of more than 400 megawatts. "The country has a lot of potential for the increased use of renewable energies," says Dr. Klaus Pötter, General Manager at ABO Wind and responsible for the activities of the Polish subsidiary.
