Background

The Elbląg plant was originally commissioned in 1928. However, it suffered damage during the war and was rebuilt in 1946. The plant expanded from 1953-1956, and added cogeneration in the 1960s. It has been operating under Energa since 1997.[2]

In 2020, Energa proposed converting the fuel source from hard coal to gas.[3] There are also reports of a new gas-fired combined-cycle cogeneration unit proposal.[4][5]
