15 October 2012

Prague, Oct 12 (CTK) - Energy company CEZ wants to build wind farms with a capacity of 600 megawatts in Poland by 2017, server said Friday.

But CEZ spokeswoman Barbora Pulpanova told CTK that it is difficult in this phase to estimate what the output of the power plants will be within five years.

The project is for now in the phase of preparations, Pulpanova said.

CEZ wants to obtain a building permit for the wind farms next year. The company could start to build the power plants next year already, but the year 2014 is a more likely date for the launch of construction, according to Pulpanova.

It is now difficult to estimate the date when the power plants will be launched into operation, Pulpanova said. CEZ is not producing electricity from wind energy in Poland now.

CEZ bought a majority stake in Polish developer of wind parks Eco - Wind Construction in December 2011. The developer has a total of 15 projects in its portfolio that have a total capacity of up to 700 megawatts.
