The Management Board of PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna S.A. (“PGE”) discloses that on April 4, 2013 the Management Board of PGE Górnictwo i Energetyka Konwencjonalna S.A. (subsidiary of PGE) decided to close the investment project Opole II of construction of new hard coal-fired units no 5 and 6 in Branch Elektrownia Opole.
Changes on the energy market and in the macroeconomic environment limited economic efficiency of this investment for PGE. The analyses, which were carried out, indicate that regarding the PGE’s generation portfolio, mainly based on lignite, and other investment projects that are being executed in PGE Group, continuation of the project Opole II would not be value creative for the PGE’s shareholders.
