Background

Adamów Mine was owned by ZespoŁ Elektrowni Patnow-Adamow-Konin (ZE PAK Group).

KWB Adamów extracted lignite for the needs of the Adamów power plant. After the termination of operations by the Adamów power plant at the end of 2017, the operation of the mine was extended due to the remaining coal resources to be extracted, which were transported to the Pątnów power plant.[2]

According to the plans announced in September 2020 by the board of PAK, a large photovoltaic farm is to be built in the post-pit area.[2] The company has already signed a contract for the construction of a turnkey photovoltaic farm with a capacity of 70 MW along with the necessary technical infrastructure. According to the plans, the start of operation of the farm is scheduled for August 2021.[2]
