Elektrownia Polnoc Ltd (EPL), a subsidiary of Kulczyk Investments, is planning to construct a coal-fired power plant in Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland.
The project involves the construction of a 1,600MW (2X800MW) coal-fired power plant on 223ha of land. It includes the construction of a powerhouse, a substation, a water treatment plant and other related facilities, the installation of generators, turbines and safety systems, and the laying of transmission lines.
In March 2012, seven consortia companies submitted bids out of the nine pre-qualified companies. The consortia who have submitted bids for the EPC contract were SNC-Lavalin, Mostostal Warszawa, Hitachi with Polimex, Alstom, Rafako, Doosan with Siemens, Shanghai Electric Group and China National Electric Engineering Corporation.
In December 2012, Shanghai Electric Group, Hitachi Power Europe, Polimex-Mostostal consortium, a consortium of Doosan Power Systems, Siemens and Alstom were shortlisted among the qualified bidders.
In May 2013, Alstom was awarded an EPC contract. However, in December 2013, Alstom signed a new contract with Elektrownia after plans were revised.
As of December 2013, the project is facing delay, due to delay in obtaining approvals. The decision on financing has also been suspended until all approvals are in place.
As of September 2015, EPL is yet to secure the final approvals from the government.
In December 2016, Regional Administrative Court in Gdansk rejected the building permit for the project.
The project is being delayed due to protest from local environmentalists.
