The Skurpie Wind Farm comprises 19 Siemens SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines with the tower height of 115 m and rotor diameter of 108 m, substation, underground transmission line infrastructure and access roads to each turbine. The total capacity of the Skurpie Wind Farm is 43.7 MW.
The Skurpie Wind Farm is operated by Polenergia Farma Wiatrowa 4 Sp. z o.o., a special purpose vehicle wholly owned by Polenergia S.A.
In all wind farms, after they are delivered for operation, post-construction monitoring of the impact of the turbines on birds and bats is carried out. The results of the 3-year research program, compliant with industry practices and decision on environmental conditions, are sent to competent authorities and to the communes where the projects are located. In the case of the Skurpie Wind Farm, no negative impact on the analyzed species was identified.
All emissions are subject to environmental supervision and are subject to pertinent industry authorizations and agreements. This pertains to both noise emissions, electromagnetic fields and waste management by in-house or external services, and water and sewage management.
In 2020, no fines were imposed on the company and no inspection was carried out at its facility.
In 2016 and 2017, the impact of the investment project on birds and bats was monitored on an ongoing basis. According to the contents of the decision on environmental conditions, the results of the studies were submitted to the competent authorities (the Commune Hall and the Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection) after each half-year of the study. No adverse project impact on birds and bats has been shown. 2019 saw another cycle of studies and a summary of the 3-year ornithological survey. The final report was submitted to the administration authorities and shared with the local community at an information point following the finish of the studies and the preparation of the analysis, i.e. in May 2020.
The Skurpie Wind Farm was commissioned in Q3 and Q4 2015. In accordance with the decision on environmental conditions the post-construction measurements of noise levels were carried out in November 2015 and in April-May 2016. The measurements were performed by a certified subcontractor EKO-POMIAR. On the basis of the obtained results, no breaches were identified, neither in the daytime nor in the nighttime. The results of the aforementioned noise analysis were submitted to competent authorities which did not make any comments (Mayor of the Płośnica Commune).
