The Branch comprises two heat and power plants: Gdańsk Heat and Power Plant and Gdynia Heat and Power Plant, of the total thermal power in excess of 1206.5 MWt and electric power of approximately 322.5 MWe. The two power plants produce heat and electricity for the local communities, large enterprises, and investment projects. Heat covers 100% demand of the municipal heating networks in Gdańsk, Gdynia, Sopot, and Rumia.
Heat and electricity are produced in a technological process called cogeneration. The general efficiency of the cogeneration process is above 85%. Cogeneration is also more favourable in terms of environmental protection, due to the much lower fuel consumption and high effectiveness in limiting the emission of combustion products to air.
We cogenerate heat and electricity. The main customers of thermal energy are two distributors of network heat in the TriCity: Gdańskie Przedsiębiorstwo Energetyki Cieplnej Sp. z o.o. in Gdańsk (GPEC) and Okręgowe Przedsiębiorstwo Energetyki Cieplnej Sp. z o.o. in Gdynia (OPEC). Moreover, heat in steam is sold directly to large enterprises located in the vicinity of the Branch.
Electricity produced at the Wybrzeże Branch is supplied to distribution and trading companies all over Poland as well as to direct clients who are located near our heat and power plants.
