The following representatives of our Office participated in these celebrations: President of the Board — Andrzej Kowalski, Production Manager — Michał Woźniczka and the Management Board Plenipotentiary for the Turów Power Plant — Michał Żmija.

Since its establishment in 1962 the power plant, presently one of the Branches of PGE Górnictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna SA, has been continuing to generate electric energy with use of brown coal as a fuel. The continuous development and natural environment conservation enable to name the Turów Power Plant one of the most modern power plants in Poland. The work of our Office’s specialists contributed, inter alia, to the fact that the Turów Power Plant is the lead of the Polish power plants. In years 1992—2004 the power rehabilitation program was executed which covered replacement of the basic devices of the units 1—6. The existing units were replaced by new, the world’s largest units with increased power fluid boilers (235 MW — units 1, 2, 3; 260 MW — units 4, 5, 6). The program included also reconstruction and modernisation of the auxiliary devices of the existing units along with equipping them with flue gas desulfurisation system (units 8, 9 and 10). The units nos. 7 and 8 were decommissioned in 2003 and 2010, respectively, following their technical depletion.
Presently, we perform the design and consulting technical services and the following associated services for the Power Plant: financial, commercial and economic in the process of preparing the investment project of construction of 460 MW supercritical unit in dust technology as well as selection of this unit construction company.
