Largest wind farm in VSB's history
Taczalin wind farm in Poland has connected 45.1 MW to the grid
On the 14th of November 2013 was the opening of the largest single project in VSB's company history near the Polish town of Legnica in Lower Silesia. The wind farm directly adjacent to the A4 motorway was installed by VSB Energie Odnawialne Polska in a record construction time of only eleven months. Altogether, 22 wind turbines supply up to 22,500 households with environmentally friendly electricity. The wind turbines, with a capacity of 2.05 MW each, feed into the local energy supply grid by way of a specially installed substation and a 110 kV connecting cable.
Breaking New Ground in Electricity Marketing: VSB and Mercedes-Benz Enter Into Long-Term Supply Contract for Wind-Generated Electricity in Poland
As of 2019 VSB helps Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Poland pave the way towards carbon-neutral manufacturing with a strategic investment. The automaker will power an engine plant using electricity from renewable energy sources only. The long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) for the factory in Jawor is the first of its kind in Poland.
The wind farm Taczalin will provide the needed electricity, which is located around 10 km from the plant. The manufacturing site will produce four-cylinder engines for Mercedes-Benz cars. The automaker is able to choose wind-generated electricity to power its plant thanks to Poland’s renewable energy scheme. The scheme permits suppliers to offer their electricity on the market or sell it as part of a PPA. PPAs are becoming an increasingly popular marketing tool for suppliers of wind-generated power in Europe and around the world. Suppliers enter into these agreements with major power consumers to coordinate a long-term purchase of electricity at a contractually agreed fixed rate. That way, consumers are able to protect themselves against rising electricity rates, while suppliers of green energy can rely on stable revenue that facilitates more reliable budgeting.
