French company Qair starts operation of seventh wind farm in Poland




French renewables company Qair has started the operation of its seventh wind farm in Poland.

The company informed that the 12.8MW project consists of six Vestas turbines in total. It includes four 2.2MW and two 2MW.

The project is located in Olszowka Wind Park.

According to the company, the wind park has a potential to generate 43GWh of electricity annually. It can address the energy demand of around 24,000 households. Besides, the park will avoid the emission of around 33,700 tonnes of CO2 annually.

In Poland, Qair currently owns 258MW of installed operating capacity, including both wind and PV farms. The company operates seven wind parks in Rzepin, Linowo, Udanin, Wrzesnia, Parzeczew, Rychwal and Olszowka.

The wind farms generate power through a total of 93 wind turbines with an installed capacity of 205 MW.

“The Olszowka farm is the second wind farm project that we have put into operation in recent months,” Qair Polska CEO Krzysztof Wojtysiak, was quoted in a report.

He further stated, “Poland deserves an even more affordable electricity from RES and we can contribute to make a positive difference. With the soaring energy prices, both businesses and individuals are awaiting solutions. In the coming months, we plan to complete the construction of four additional wind farms and ten photovoltaic projects, increasing our operating volume to almost 400 MW.”

The company plans to commission new wind farms in Wadroże Wielkie and Wisznice by the end of this year. Next year, the projects with a total capacity of 82MW will enter the operational phase.
