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][4] To this end, they are investing in a new gas-fired unit in a combined cycle cogeneration system to continue to provide power to Elblag's heating and power system.[5][6] In 2021, construction of two boilers was completed, with plans to finish the system in the coming years.[7]
