PGE Group launched two new wind farms, Starza/Rybice and Karnice II

The investment project in the north-western part of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland, comprises 43 turbines with a total installed capacity of nearly 100 MW.

The project has increased the total installed capacity of PGE’s wind farms by 20 percent to near 647 MW and strengthened the group’s position as the Poland’s largest manufacturer of green energy.

Within the framework of the project implemented in the area of Kamień Pomorski and Gryfice Poviats, 33 wind turbines with a nominal capacity of 2 MW and 10 wind turbines with a capacity of 2.2 MW were built together with the accompanying infrastructure and a grid connection in the form of two substations.

For the foundations of all the wind turbines, 16,340 m³ of concrete (more than 1,800 courses of concrete trucks) and 2,120 tons of reinforcing steel (more than 8 Boeing 787 Dreamliner passenger aircraft) were used.

The turbines, each weighing about 260 tons, were mounted on 110 and 125 meter towers respectively. Their blades made of laminate (glass fibre/resin mixture) are 100 or 110 metres long in diameter.
