Dargikowo and Karlino are located in the north-west of Poland. With a production capacity of 133 MW for Dargikowo and 53 MW for Karlino, these wind parks can provide renewable energy for approximately 260,000 average households of the region per year. This would be enough to supply a city the size of Poznań with clean energy for one year.
“We are very delighted to announce our 100th and 101st renewable project which are at the same time our first equity investments in Poland. Our new wind parks will make an important contribution to increase the share of renewable energy in Poland and help to reach Allianz´s goal of a carbon-neutral portfolio by 2050 while delivering stable cash yields to Allianz insurance clients,” says Christian Fingerle, Chief Investment Officer at Allianz Capital Partners.
“With the energy generated by the Dargikowo and Karlino projects upon completion, 11 mil-lion tonnes of CO2 can be saved by 2050 compared to the current energy mix in Poland,” says Georg Höfler, Director at Allianz Capital Partners, who led the transaction.
Gunar Hering, board member of ENERTRAG, adds, “We are very proud of our contribution to the Polish energy transition and are looking forward to construct more wind and solar plants in the new future.” Simon Hagedorn, Vice President Finance of ENERTRAG, comments: “ENERTRAG’s success in the Polish renewables auction last year and the subsequent project sale to Allianz is proof of ENERTRAG’s high quality project development.”
Allianz’s equity investments in the renewable energy sector amount to 9 solar farms and 92 wind parks located in Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and the United States. The wind and solar parks of Allianz in Europe generate enough renewable energy to supply over 1.2 million households.
