Polish energy company Enea to run Bogdanka coal mine with solar power

Renewables Now:

Polish energy group Enea SA said on Tuesday it will install up to 30 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity for a local coal mine in which it is a majority shareholder.

The solar power plants will generate electricity for the Bogdanka coal mine in the Lublin region of southeastern Poland, with their output to be sold under a power purchase agreement (PPA). 

Once up and running, the installations will be able to produce around 30,000 MWh of electricity annually. They will cover a total area of 55ha (136 acres).

Enea is the majority shareholder in Lubelski Wegiel Bogdanka. Its CEO Miroslaw Kowalik said in a news conference a week ago that the utility will look to keep the size of its installed power capacity but will rather bet on more renewables. According to a Reuters report, the state-run company owns 6.3 GW of power generation assets, of which 443 MW use renewable energy.
