Invenergy Wind and Polish renewable energy developer Enerco have started commercial  operations at three wind farms in northwest Poland.

The partnership has also completed the project financing for four other nearby wind projects, which are currently in construction.

All of the projects are owned by affiliates of the two companies.

Construction and commercial operations have started at the Darlowo Wind Energy Center-Phase One projects, comprised of the Wiekowice, Jezyce, and Dobiesław wind projects.

The three schemes will comprise a total of 32 GE 2.5XL turbines for a combined capacity of 80MW.

Power produced by the projects, about 300 miles northwest of Warsaw, will be sold under long- term power purchase agreements.

The partnership has also completed project financing for their Darlowo Wind Energy Center- Phase Two projects.

This will comprise the Boryszewo, Krupy, Nowy Jarosław, and Stary Jarosław wind farms, also in northwest Poland.

The four facilities are in construction and, when complete, will feature 38 GE 2.5 XL turbines, totalling 95MW. Commercial operations are slated for 2013.

Invenergy president Michael Polsky said: “We are pleased to have achieved these important milestones with our renewable energy portfolio in Poland. We’re proud to provide a new source of jobs and tax revenue to the Darłowo area, and look forward to a long, successful relationship with our host community.”
