Background

The four units of Stalowa Wola power station were commissioned from 1958 to 1966. Units 1-2 of 50 MW each were retired in 2009.[1] Units 3-4 of 125 MW each are on standby mode.[2]

In 2012 plans were announced for construction of a new 450 MW combined-cycle power plant at the site. Operation was planned for 2015. The plant is sponsored by Elektrocieplownia Stalowa Wola, a joint venture between PGNiG and Tauron Group.[3]

In June 2019, S&P Global reported that Tauron plans to finish the delayed 450 MW CCGT in 2020.[4]

In August 2020, S&P Global reported that Tauron had completed the synchronization of the nearly five year-delayed, US$403 million CCGT with the national grid, and that it would enter a testing phase before the intended start-up of operations in September 2020.[5] That start-up was delayed again on September 7.[6] The unit officially came online September 30, 2020.[7]
