Background on Plant

Siekierki is a combined heat and power plant at Augustówka in Warsaw, Poland. It has power generation capacity of 622 MW. Construction work on the station started in 1958, and in 1961 the first 50 MW unit went in service. Three further units followed in 1962, increasing its power to 200 MW. The first four units have been retired. Five more units totaling 618 MW were built between 1961 and 1975. Previously owned by Vattenfall it is now owned by PGNiG.[1][2]

Proposed plant

In 2010 it was reported that Vattenfall decided to cancel the Opalenie power station, but may continue plans with building its Warsaw-based Siekierki power station,[3] which was also later cancelled.
