Kostomłoty Wind Farm

The Kostomłoty Wind Farm project will be executed by Polenergia Farma Wiatrowa Dębice/Kostomłoty Sp. z o.o., a special purpose vehicle wholly owned by Polenergia. The project is located in Kostomłoty commune, Średzkie county, Dolnośląskie Voivodeship in southern Poland.

The project has undergone a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedure based on an EIA report prepared for a wind farm configuration of thirteen wind turbines in the preferred scenario and seventeen wind turbines in the alternative. The EIA procedure was preceded by annual monitoring of birds and bats in the site of the planned project. The EIA procedure was completed in July 2013 with the issuance of the environmental decision (document no. RITGNROŚGP.6220.2.21.2013.TB). In 2016, the Company obtained a building permit for the construction of nine turbines, main substation, underground infrastructure for power and control cables, access roads to individual turbines, and assembly and maintenance yards. The building permits were amended in 2016, 2017, and 2018 to reflect the final selected wind turbine types and other minor changes.

Currently, the project includes the construction of nine turbines to be located in the area delineated by the villages of Bogdanów, Godków (southwest corner), Paździorno (east corner), Piotrowice (northeast corner), and Wichrów (northwest corner). According to the building permit (amended in 2018), the capacity of individual Vestas V136 wind turbines will be 3 MW. The parameters of the wind turbines will be as follows:

  • hub height: 122 m
  • hub height: 122 m

The total installed capacity of the wind farm will be 27 MW.

The financing institution for the project will be mBank S.A. At the end of 2020, the project underwent an Environmental and Social Due Diligence (ESDD) conducted by an independent consultant, which showed that the environmental impact assessment procedure conducted was in compliance with the EIA Directive. In addition, as a matter of good practice, the project was assessed to meet the Performance Requirements (PRs) of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The ESDD has demonstrated that the project meets the operational requirements listed above.

As part of the analysis, a project-specific Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) was also prepared that includes actions needed to be implemented during the construction phase, including:

  • conducting regular supervision of the construction works to ensure that they are carried out in accordance with the provisions of the environmental decision, the provisions of the C-ESMP and best industry practice, and that environmental risks are mitigated and adequately controlled
  • developing an environmental and public management plan for the construction phase of the project
  • conducting regular supervision of the construction works to ensure that they are carried out in accordance with the provisions of the environmental decision, the provisions of the C-ESMP and best industry practice, and that environmental risks are mitigated and adequately controlled
  • developing an environmental and public management plan for the construction phase of the project

The general contractor for the construction work was selected in late 2020.

Construction was scheduled to start at the end of Q1 2021 and was preceded by initial training for subcontractors. The training covered occupational health and safety, environmental protection as well as ethical issues (Polenergia Group environmental and social policy and standards of conduct for partners – vendors and subcontractors). In addition, the construction stage is monitored by specialists from BIO EKSPERT, who are responsible for environmental supervision.
