A photovoltaic farm with 65 megawatts (MW) of power will be built in Przykona, in the Wielkopolskie Voivodeship. The commencement of construction works is planned for mid-2023, the Orlen Group announced. As indicated, according to estimates, the farm will be able to produce energy during the year that “is able to power over 30,000 households”.

The Orlen Group announced on Monday that its company Energa Green Development has obtained a set of permits for the construction of 65 MW of power as part of the first stage of the Mitra photovoltaic farm. Currently, a procedure is underway to select a contractor for the facility.

As announced, after concluding the contract with the contractor, the construction of its first stage will take just over a year.

The Orlen Group announced in a press release that in addition to the construction of the Mitra farm itself, the selected company will also be responsible for the construction of the infrastructure for power output to the power grid: the Main GPO Psary and connecting it with an 11 km cable line with the Main Power Supply Point GPZ Żuki.

“The contractor will also be responsible for preparing an application for a permit to use the investment and putting it into operation. In addition, for 2 years from the completion of the investment, the selected company will provide maintenance services” – added.

Mitra photovoltaic farm in Wielkopolska

The Mitra farm will be built on land belonging to Energa in the commune of Przykona, in the Turek poviat (Wielkopolskie Voivodeship), reclaimed after the lignite opencast of the Adamów mine. In total, the renewable capacities of the ORLEN Group, which are being built and are already operating in this location, will be able to supply nearly 70,000 households with clean energy.

President of the Management Board of PKN Orlen Daniel Obajtek pointed out that more than half of the energy produced by the company comes from low- and zero-emission sources. “We will continue to invest in this segment, because it allows us to become truly independent of fossil fuels and strengthens Poland’s energy security,” Obajtek announced.

Energa Green Development, a company from the ORLEN Group, has obtained a set of permits for the construction of 65 MW of power as part of the implementation of the first stage of the Mitra photovoltaic farm. The start of construction works is planned for the middle of this year. Currently, a procedure is underway to select a contractor for the facility. The Mitra farm is being built in Przykona, in the Wielkopolskie Voivodeship, on revitalized post-mining areas.

More photovoltaic farms

The company announced that in 2023 Energa will also fully launch two other photovoltaic farms. The first one is the Gryf farm with a target installed capacity of approx. 26 MW. This facility is being built in the immediate vicinity of the Przykona wind farm, on the same land where the Mitra wind farm will be built.

The second project is the Wielbark wind farm in the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodship with a total capacity of 62 MW. “As part of the Gryf farm, 12 MW of power have already been launched, the rest will be launched in the first half of this year, after the upgrade of the GPZ Wielbark station” – explained.
