A pioneer of renewable energy, the VSB Group, has successfully commissioned the Baranów-Rychtal wind farm in Poland. The project has eleven wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 42.6 MW. It can generate sufficient green energy every year to meet the consumption demand of approximately 36,000 households, resulting in a reduction of nearly 45,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.
Poland has ambitious renewable energy goals and wants to fulfill its energy needs without emissions by 2040. In this regard, the Baranów-Rychtal wind farm, developed by VSB Energie Odnawialne Polska, a Polish subsidiary of the VSB Group, can help the country in its energy transition journey and also serve as an inspiration for the region. The construction permit for the project was received at the end of 2019 and VSB was successful in winning the bid in the 2020 renewable energy auction.
The Baranów-Rychtal wind farm, comprising ten Nordex N131/3.9 turbines and one Nordex N117/3.6 turbine, has a combined capacity of 42.6 MW. It produces green electricity, which is fed into the grid operated by Grupa Energa, a distribution grid operator in Poland.
“The commissioning of the Baranów-Rychtal wind farm is an important step in the development of renewable energy in Poland. We are very proud to contribute to this change with the successful work of our great team in Poland,” said Felix Grolman, CEO of the VSB Group.
Hubert Kowalski, Managing Director of VSB Energie Odnawialne Polska, added,“Our sincere thanks go to our valued partners, contractors, the supportive local community and the authorities of Baranów and Rychtal Municipalities, Kępiński County and Urząd Regulacji Energetyki (URE). Their unwavering support and cooperation have been crucial to the successful development and operation of this wind farm.”
