- BayWa has built a new warehouse as large as 5,700 sq. mtr. in Poland along with a new office space
- It will enable it to stay closer to local installers, significantly reducing time to deliver its products
- Customers will be able to pay the German company without the need to exchange currency
- The space will also be used to conduct free training sessions for installers to make purchase decisions
Germany’s renewable energy company BayWa r.e. renewable energy GmbH has opened its 1st warehouse in Poland, as well as a new office in Krakow in a bid to stay closer to local PV installers as it sees the growing solar potential of the country.
BayWa said the new premises will enable it to manage its continuously expanding photovoltaic wholesale business in the European country heralding ‘a new era’ in the PV trading business for the company here.
The 5,700 m2 modern warehouse, it hopes, will translate into ‘even more support and better logistics services’. The new premises will officially open in April 2021.
“As soon as the new warehouse and offices are open, our customers can pay us directly without the need to exchange currency,” explained Managing Director of BayWa re Solar Systems in Poland, Lukasz Zaziabl. “We will also be able to significantly improve delivery times, so that 95% of the products can be delivered within 24 hours and the remaining products within 48 hours.”
It also plans to utilize the available space to conduct free training courses and practical seminars to help installers make the best purchase decision.
Stable legal situation, government subsidies and increasing focus on improving the share of renewable energies instead of fossil fuels that have contributed to the growth of rooftop solar PV systems here, are some of the reasons BayWa counts to show why Poland is an attractive destination for the company (see Poland Approves Energy Policy Until 2040).
Recently, renewable energy institute IEO came out with an estimate for Poland to grow to a total of 15 GW solar PV capacity by the end of 2025 (see Poland: Solar PV Capacity To Grow To 15 GW By 2025).
In January 2021, BayWa secured a power purchase agreement (PPA) for its 64.6 MW subsidy free solar park in Poland with Polish subsidiary of Germany’s HeidelbergCement (see ‘1st’ Subsidy Free Solar Park In Poland Seals PPA).
