    Polish energy company Orlen Wind 3 has finalized the acquisition of two onshore wind farms in Wielkopolskie and Zachodniopomorskie from the UK-based Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust. With a combined capacity of approximately 60 MW, these farms, located in Kuślin and Krzęcin, are set to power over 100,000 households.

    Ongoing Commitment to Renewable Energy

    Orlen, a key player in Central Europe’s energy transformation, now boasts nearly 1 GW of installed capacity in renewable sources. This recent transaction aligns with the company’s ambitious goals to provide affordable, safe, and clean energy to the Polish population.

    In addition to the acquired wind farms, Orlen highlights its existing projects in Wielkopolska and plans for further expansion. The company emphasizes its strategic investments in solar and wind projects, including the Baltic Power offshore wind farm, slated to be the largest in Central-Eastern Europe upon completion in 2026.

    Vision for a Sustainable Future

    Orlen reiterates its commitment to a sustainable future, with plans to reach over 9 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030. The company aims to allocate 40% of its investment, totaling 120 billion PLN, to green initiatives, encompassing wind and solar energy, biogas, biofuels, electromobility, and green hydrogen.

    The acquisition marks a significant milestone in Orlen’s strategy, shaped by the merger with Energa, Lotos, and PGNiG. As part of its vision, Orlen underscores the importance of becoming a multi-energy conglomerate, driving Poland’s effective energy transformation.
