Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments

The EBRD is considering providing a senior loan to Elektrociepłownia Stalowa Wola S.A. (the “Borrower” or “EC SW”), a special purpose company owning 100% interests in the Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (the “CCGT”) unit with the generation capacity of 400 MWe and 240 MWt (the “Project”). The Borrower is owned by Elektrownia Stalowa Wola S.A. and PGNiG Energia S.A. (the “Shareholders”), who in turn are respectively owned by Tauron Polska Energia S.A. (Tauron”) and Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo S.A. (“PGNiG”) (together the “Sponsors”).

The financing will enable the Borrower to build and operate Poland's largest CCGT unit to be located in the town of Stalowa Wola. The Project is scheduled for completion towards the end of 2014.The project represents a major step in upgrading existing generating assets in Poland to ensure that they meet improved energy efficiency and higher environmental performance. The new project is one of the first state -of-the-art large CCGT gas fired power projects in Poland and part of Poland’s drive to reduce reliance on use of coal for power generation
