Poland : Qair launches a 60-MW solar power plant in Kalisz Pomorski
Paris, September 15, 2023 – Qair, an independent renewable energy producer, has launched yesterday a large-scale, 60-MW solar power plant in Kalisz Pomorski. The project, one of the largest of this type in Poland in terms of occupied area, will produce the equivalent of the energy consumed by approximately 20,000 households, with a reduction in CO2 emissions by around 50,000 tonnes annually.
The facility covers a total area of 82 hectares and features over 112,000 solar panel modules and 240 inverters. The solar plant is equipped with 8 transformer stations and a 11-kilometre-long high voltage (110 kV) line. The entire power generated will be sold to corporate clients under corporate Power Purchase Agreements (cPPAs).
“In line with Qair’s strategy, we focus on large-scale projects that accelerate the transition to zero-emissions economy. It would not have been possible to implement this ambitious plan without support from the authorities of Kalisz Pomorski Municipality and the local community. This support is one of the reasons for which West Pomeranian Voivodeship is the leader in the production of green energy. It encourages us to continue developing large-scale projects here.” – says Krzysztof Wojtysiak, CEO at Qair Polska.
Qair is consistently expanding its portfolio of solar and wind power projects. In 2024, the operating capacity of all the Company’s power plants in Poland will exceed 500 MW.
