It has already been 15 years of Sevivon activity in Poland. On Tuesday 22 August, we celebrated the round anniversary of the brand's presence on the Polish market. It was a good opportunity to summarise the company's activities and look into the future, in the context of dynamic development of renewable energy sources.
We celebrated the 15th anniversary of our presence in Poland in our newly enlarged Sevivon office in Gdańsk. During the ceremony, we thanked all employees of the company for their contribution to building a strong position of the company in the renewable energy sector in Poland. The event was attended among others by Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE AG, the owner of Sevivon. He emphasised the growing role of the company in the area of construction and operation of wind and photovoltaic farms in Poland. In his speech, he drew attention to the challenges the company faces in the face of the energy transition and the progressive decarbonisation of the economy with it. Marcus also spoke about the fact that the Polish market is unique and difficult because it is characterised by high volatility and unpredictability. At the same time, he emphasised his confidence in the Sevivon team, which faces these challenges on a daily basis.
Stefan Ebeling, CEO of Sevivon, took the floor during the celebration of its 15th anniversary in Poland. He drew attention to the scale of the projects currently being implemented by the company, which will allow 2 GW of green power to be built in the near future, both for households and institutional consumers. At the same time, he went back to the company's beginnings, emphasising - in retrospect - how great its achievements are. Holger Gallas, a member of Sevivon's board of directors, emphasised that while the company's plans are indeed ambitious, in his opinion the team is perfectly equipped to implement them and the development process is well thought out. Nina Ociepa, from Energy Consult (PNE Group), spoke about how the group's companies can offer more and more comprehensive and expert services in the field of farm operation. Adam Stadnik, one of Sevivon's first Polish business partners, was also present among the invited guests. During the ceremony, he presented the management board with a picture painted by the mayor, where the company developed its first wind projects. In his speech, he emphasised the generational responsibility of companies investing in green energy.
Representatives of companies and industry organisations cooperating with Sevivon also celebrated with us. Piotr Czopek, director of regulatory affairs in the Polish Wind Energy Association, emphasised the importance of companies such as Sevivon in the process of transformation of the domestic energy sector and thanked for 14 years of committed membership and support in shaping a positive regulatory environment, opening perspectives for RES development in Poland.
The Sevivon team has grown significantly over the 15 years of its operation and continues to grow. Today, it already consists of almost 50 people. It is their experience and high competence that allow us to implement more and more ambitious investment projects that change the image of the Polish energy sector.
