Sebastian Gula heads the Nowe Jaworzno Grupa Tauron, which was created specifically to manage a new unit at the Jaworzno Power Plant. Now the head of the Tauron branch is Paweł Szczeszek, who has been running the parent company of the Katowice Energy Group since April 2022. Previously, he headed Pozna Enea. Gulla remains the head of another company – Tauron Wytwarzanie, which operates the group’s remaining power plants.
– The direct management of the company responsible for operating the 910 MW unit will improve decision-making processes both in the context of tests and tuning the unit in the transitional period, as well as mediation before the Prosecutor’s Office in Ravako – said Szczeszek. – With the current structure of the Tauron group and the division of powers, at the same time managing the work of the boards of directors of the central company and the company managing the block It will also improve coordination in providing carbon fuel to the unit – Head Torun added.
Business Insider Polska was the first to write about the problems with operating the latest unit at the Jaworzno Power Plant, which cost more than 6 billion PLN to build. We revealed that the block’s main contractor – Rafaco – reported problems with the availability of coal from the Torun mines, and above all with the quality of the fuel.. Rafaco Group’s internal correspondence, received by Business Insider, shows that the installation is burning poor-quality coal, which recently led to “a series of unplanned shutdowns and collapses.”
Subsequent reports on the matter, consistent with our findings, were provided by Onet.
Torun has long denied there are problems with the supply or quality of the coal being burned in the new block. However, in recent days, the company has had to shut down the entire block for a few days, and for reasons What Onet reportedI wrote: “emergency repair – Stuck ash removal and ash removal – Deslager repair.” Renovation will continue until Wednesday, August 10.
Earlier, there were also several unplanned shutdowns of some power in the new unit. The most common reason was “loss due to operating conditions”. In July, with one of the shutdowns, it was explicitly written: “No fuel.” After Business Insider posted, Tauron removed this requirement from information regarding power loss.
Today, Szczec makes it clear that the goal for the coming months is to have effective negotiations with Rafako and an ideal timetable for the end of the transitional period for the new unit in Gauruzno. – I would like to remind you that a block with a full capacity can generate about 6.5 TWh of electricity per year, using up to 2.5 million tons of coal – explained the president.
