Leki Dukielskie will supply power for around 5,000 households (or 20,000 people) with immediate effect.

Per Hornung Pedersen, chairman of the executive board of REpower, is keen to point out the development opportunities available there: “The market for wind energy in Poland is characterised by prime wind locations for wind farms and tremendous growth rates over the past few years although, with just 500 MW installed, the nominal output is still low. Against this background, we see enormous potential for expanding the market for wind energy. This will also play a key role in enabling Poland to reach its targets in the 20-20-20 Climate Protection Initiative.”

“Bukowsko”, the second wind farm project planned by Martifer Renewables and REpower, will comprise eight MM92 turbines and is due to be commissioned by the end of 2009. This wind farm is also located near Rzeszow.
