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 has proposed building a new combined-cycle unit at the existing Siechnice site. There are conflicting reports of either 110 MW or 170 MW capacity for the new gas-fired cogeneration unit.[3][4] Polimex Mostostal S.A. was provisionally chosen as the construction company in January, 2021.[5]
