Green Investment Group acquires the 48 MW Zajaczkowo onshore wind farm in Poland aacquarie’s Green Investment Group announced its second acquisition in Poland, buying the 48 MW onshore wind farm in Zajaczkowo from J-Power Investment Netherlands BV and Mitsui Renewable Energy Europe Limited. The project is located approximately 10km south-west of the city of Slupsk and 110km north-west of Gdansk. The Zajaczkowo wind farm comprises of 24 Vestas V80 turbines, and is generating enough renewable electricity to power the equivalent of 38,367 homes. It has been operating for 11 years, having achieved a commercial operations date in September 2008. This acquisition sees GIG continuing to build presence in a new market with strong fundamentals and significant growth potential for renewables.

Poland is the largest electricity market in Central Eastern Europe1, but has one of the lowest shares of renewables in electricity generation in that part of Europe2. Electricity demand is predominantly met from an ageing fleet of coal and lignite power plants, and in time these plants will need to be replaced with new generating capacity – making renewables deployment increasingly important.

With this in mind, the Polish Government held auctions for onshore wind last year and is planning further such auctions for 2019, with an intention to secure a further 2.5GW of capacity3.
