Background

Czechnica Power Station is owned by Kogeneracja S.A., a Polish power company owned 50:50 by EDF Group. The power station consists of two 50 MW units and one unit of 32 MW, commissioned in 1955.[1]

PGE acquired EDF's Polish assets in 2017.[2] The company proposed building a new combined-cycle unit at the existing Siechnice site, which would replace the coal units.[3] Polimex Mostostal S.A. was provisionally chosen as the construction company in January, 2021.[4]

Construction of the cogeneration unit began in October 2021.[5]
