DONG Energy's supervisory board today decided to build and operate the Karnice
I onshore wind farm in Poland. Karnice I will have a net installed capacity of
30 MW and is expected to become operational in late 2009. The new wind farm
represents an expected investment of DKK 443 million.
“Poland is an interesting market offering attractive settlement terms, and we
are pleased to initiate the construction of our second wind farm in the
country. The project is an important step in our strategy for expansion in
renewable sources of energy,” said DONG Energy CEO Anders Eldrup.
Karnice I, which was given final regulatory approval in the spring of 2008,
will be located in the municipality of Karnice in north-eastern Poland. DONG
Energy is already the operator of nearby Lake Ostrowo, a 31 MW wind farm, which
became operational in 2007.
In addition to Karnice I, DONG Energy's current projects include the Storrun
onshore wind farm in Sweden (30 MW), the Horns Rev II offshore wind farm in
Denmark (209 MW) as well as the Gunfleet Sands I and II (108 and 65 MW) and the
Walney (151 MW) offshore wind farms in the UK.
The information provided in this press release will not influence DONG Energy's
financial results for 2008, which as previously announced are expected to be in
line with the financial results for 2007.
