Continuing its international expansion strategy, Iberdrola has begun the start-up of its first wind farm in Poland and confirmed that it has started building its second wind farm in the country, which will also be started up this year.

The new wind farm, called Kisielice, has a capacity of 40.5MW, thanks to 27 wind generators of 1.5MW nominal power, and is located in Warminsko-Mazurskie, in northern Poland

Iberdrola has also recently begun building its second wind power installation in Poland. This wind farm, which will be named Malbork will have a capacity amounting to 18MW, and will be started up later in 2007.

These two developments come as part of Iberdrola’s international expansion strategy. The Spanish company first entered the Polish wind power market in 2005, with the acquisition of MVV Eternegy Polska, later known as Iberdrola Energia Odnawialna Sp zoo, which has 800MW under development.
