RWE subsidiary buys 30MW Polish wind farm from Gamesa

08 Aug 2012

RWE Renewables Polska, a subsidiary of German power firm RWE Innogy has acquired a 30MW Taciewo wind farm in Podlaskie, Poland from Spanish wind energy company Gamesa for an undisclosed sum.


Gamesa has developed and built the farm equipped with 15 G90-2MW turbines, which will generate over 65,000 megawatt-hours of electricity annually enough to accommodate the power needs of 32,500 households per year in the region.

The latest deal marks third sale in 42 months between Gamesa and RWE Innogy, following the sale of 14MW Krzecin wind farm and the 32MW Piecki wind farm in July 2012 and January 2011, respectively.

With this deal, Gamesa is expected to strengthen its wind farm development and sales business in Eastern Europe, which is based primarily in Bulgaria, Poland and Romania.

As of June 2012, the company's wind energy project portfolio amounted to 786MW in Poland, while its portfolio across Eastern Europe totaled over 2,500MW.
