“Our initial plans assume that the new generator could be online in 2016 at the earliest,” Andrzej Rubczyński, director for strategy and analysis at Vattenfall Heat, told Dow Jones Newswires on Monday.

The generator will consume between 0.5 and 0.6 billion cubic meters of natural gas every year.

Up to 50 percent of Warsaw’s seven terawatt-hours of annual consumption is provided by Vattenfall Heat’s co-generation plants.
