Background

The Pomorzany power plant was built in 1936–40. The plant was destroyed during WWII, and was not restarted until 1961, when two 67 MW coal-fired units were commissioned.[1]

In 2012, PGE proposed a 240 MW gas plant to replace the power station's two coal-fired units.[2]

In 2015, PGE began work to retrofit the coal plant and extend its life through 2039,[3] suggesting plans to close the units and replace them with a gas plant has been shelved.
