The European Commission has raised no objections to state aid for the waste to energy plant in Gdańsk, Poland. The €64m aid “will contribute to the EU’s energy and environmental objectives without unduly distorting competition in the Single market”, the EU authority commented. The beneficiary of the aid is Port Czystej Energii Sp. z o.o., a company owned by the city of Gdańsk. 

The city had initially awarded a contract to a project company consisting of EEW Energy from Waste from Germany and the investment company LHI. However, the results of the tender were successfully challenged by the losing bidder. In May 2018, the city of Gdańsk signed the project contract with the consortium consisting of the Italian companies Astaldi and Termomeccanica and the French waste management company Tiru (now called Dalkia Wastenergy). The new facility is to treat up to 160,000 tonnes of pre-treated waste and will produce both district heat and electricity. Following the completion of construction, Dalkia Wastenergy is to operate the wte plant for a period of 25-years.
