Kostomłoty Wind Farm project will be carried out by Polenergia Farma Wiatrowa Dębice/Kostomłoty Sp. z o.o., a special purpose vehicle owned in 100% by Polenergia. The project is located in Kostomłoty Gmina, Środa Śląska Poviat, Dolnośląskie Voivodeship, in southern Poland.
The project has undergone a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedure based on an EIA report prepared for a wind farm configuration comprising 13 turbines in the preferred option and 17 turbines in the alternative option. The EIA procedure was preceded by a yearlong monitoring of birds and bats in the area of the planned project. The EIA procedure was concluded in July 2013 with the issuance of the decision on environmental conditions (document ref. No. RITGNROŚGP.6188.8.131.523.TB). In 2016, the company obtained a building permit for the construction of 9 turbines, the main substation, underground infrastructure of power and control cables, access roads to respective turbines and assembly and maintenance areas. The building permits were amended in 2016, 2017 and 2018 to reflect the final selected turbine types and other minor changes.
Currently, the project includes the construction of 9 turbines, which will be located in the area delimited by the villages of Bogdanów, Godków (south-west corner), Paździorno (east corner), Piotrowice (north-east corner) and Wichrów (north-west corner). According to the building permit (amended in 2018), the capacity of the individual Vestas V136 turbines will be 3 MW. The parameters of the turbines will be as follows:
