RWE Innogy has commenced construction on its fourth 39MW Polish wind farm worth €60m at Nowy Staw.

The wind farm will be installed with 19 units of Repower MM92 turbines with a capacity of 2.05MW each.

RWE Innogy CEO Fritz Vahrenholt said that the Nowy Staw project extends its wind portfolio in Poland by almost 40MW.

"This will bring us a great step closer to our goal of adding 50MW of wind capacity in Poland every year until 2015," said Vahrenholt.

"Our wind pipeline is well filled. All in all, Innogy plans to have around 300MW in operation in Poland by 2015."

The wind farm is slated to be commissioned as early as 2013 and will supply green electricity to more than 50,000 households annually.

The company will also develop the local infrastructure around Nowy Staw which includes repair and modernisation work as well as the building of 3km of roads, necessary for the wind farm construction.

RWE Innogy is already operating three wind farms with a total capacity of 108MW in Suwalki, Tychowo and Piecki.
