We have shortened the duration of interruptions in electricity supplies by 50% for the last 10 years. Our plans for the future include further development of the power grid and modernisation of its existing sections - these will be next well-spent billions of Zlotys – said Andrzej Kojro, president of Enea Operator.

This year, Enea Operator has started the newest and most modern Power Dispatch Centre in Poland which will manage the high-voltage grid in the whole north-western Poland.
