SSW Pragmatic Solutions has advised Orlen Poludnie on an EPC contract for the construction of an oil pressing plant in Ketrzyn, valued at approximately PLN 850 million. The contractor for the investment will be a consortium of companies including Polimex Mostostal and AB Industry.
According to SSW, “the oil will be used in facilities in the Orlen Group to produce low-emission biofuels. The plant will process 500,000 tons of rapeseed per year (about one seventh of the domestic production of this resource) and produce 200,000 tons of oil. The main recipient for the oil will be Orlen Poludnie, which produces biodiesel at its plant in Trzebinia.”
Moreover, SSW reports that “in addition to the pressing plant itself, the complex will include technological nodes related to the collection of feedstock and dispatching of products, storage of feedstock and products, pressing and extraction, production of technological steam and sewage treatment, as well as a railway siding. The investment is part of Orlen Group’s strategy for the development of biofuels in Poland.”
The SSW team included Partner Hubert Wysoczanski and Counsel Katarzyna Cybulska.
