After execution of the loan documentation for the 50MW Phase 1 of the Banie wind farm on the 18th of December 2015 with EBRD’s commitment of up to PLN 150 million (EUR 35 million), the Bank is currently considering increasing its commitment with an additional senior long-term loan of up to PLN 127 million (EUR 30 million) to finance the construction and operation of 56MW Phase 2 of the Banie wind farm, located in north western Poland (Phase 1 and Phase 2 jointly referred to as the "Project"). The construction of Phase 1 was finalized in December 2015, whereas the construction of Phase 2 started at the beginning of 2016 and is expected to be completed by mid-2016.
Both loans will be made available to Wiatromill SpK (the "Borrower") created to own, construct and operate the Banie wind farm. The Borrower is fully owned by Energix Renewable Energies Ltd. ("Energix" or the "Sponsor").
The combined Project will lead to the construction of 106MW of new renewable energy capacity in Poland. This is expected to generate over 187 thousand tonnes of CO2 savings per annum. In addition, the Project will also strengthen the private sector presence in the renewable energy sector in the country.
The Project is part of diversification for Poland energy generation source and support of renewable projects.
There is a Project Summary Document available for this project.
