Furthermore, in the mining segment the “Grzegorz” shaft with its infrastructure and the 800 m level at the Janina coal mine were under construction. In the heat segment work to build a 50 MW co-generation unit in the Tychy CHP and the pass-out and condensing turbogenerator in the Nowa CHP was continued.
