    Krobia I - Poniec II wind farms

    The first commercial wind farms using AW3000 wind turbines, mounted on towers with a hub height of 120 meters

    Krobia I and Poniec II wind farms are two twin wind farms featuring 21 wind turbines in total able to produce enough clean energy from wind to power more than 80,000 homes, thus avoiding the emission of 154,000 metric tons of CO2 a year. Each of the ACCIONA Windpower technology wind turbines has 3MW rated capacity and 116m rotor diameter mounted on 120-meter-high concrete tower. Owned, built and operated by ACCIONA Energy, both wind farms make 63 MW of installed capacity.
