Polish power contract

Poland is to gain substantial economic and environmental benefits as a result of an innovative USD 40 million power project involving Rolls-Royce, a global company providing power for land, sea and air. Rolls-Royce Power Ventures (RRPV), a 40% shareholder in Energobaltic,
has signed an agreement that gives the go-ahead for a new heat and power plant – the first of its kind in eastern and central Europe. The plant will form a key part of a project that will convert large quantities of natural gas – which at present go to waste – into clean, useful energy for the coastal resort of Wladyslawowo, north of Gdansk. Two Rolls-Royce gas turbine generators will comprise the core of the combined heat and power plant, which will displace some 100 inefficient and polluting coal-fired boilers that currently provide heat for the town, making them uneconomic in the process.
