WARSAW, Poland 6/5/12 (PennWell) — The Polish Ministry of Treasury has signed a preliminary agreement that would sell the 100-MW Niedzica hydropower plant to Energo-Pro, HydroWorld.com has learned.
Energo-Pro — a Czech utility company — has been in talks with the Polish government since September 2011, although finalization of the transaction has been postponed several times due to legal issues with land surrounding the facility.
Niedzica is currently owned by the Polish government and is located in the Pieniny Mountains in the southern part of the country.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed, but it is expected that the deal will be completed in the first half of 2013.
Also in Poland, HydroWorld.com reported in May that utility Tauron Ekoenergia sp. z.o.o. is seeking bids to replace torbine generators at the 312-kW Bobrowice 2 hydropower plant on the Bobr River.
