Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki at the LNG regasification station in Tychowo
Tychowo in the West Pomeranian Province is another town to have gained access to natural gas thanks to the LNG regasification station built by Polska Spółka Gazownictwa from the PGNiG Group. The station has been operating since January of this year. On June 11, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki visited the LNG regasification station in Tychowo during his visit to Western Pomerania.
- In economic development, infrastructure is a prerequisite for attracting entrepreneurs, a higher standard of living for residents, and better care for the natural environment. Together with PGNiG and Polska Spółka Gazownictwa, we are running a huge gasification program, which we announced 2.5 years ago. This program is to lead to a situation in which nearly 90% of the country will be supplied with gas within two or three years, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
Paweł Majewski, President of the Management Board of the Polish Oil and Gas Mining Industry, noted that the station, which operates in Tychowo, allows for natural gas to be used in homes, schools, kindergartens, clinics, hospitals and in nearby enterprises. - We assume that by the end of the year there will be approximately 80 stations operating across the country, such as the one in Tychowo. Each one aids the process of transforming the Polish economy and brings us closer to achieving low- and zero-emission goals, he emphasized.
Jakub Kowalski, Member of the Management Board of Polska Spółka Gazownictwa for operational matters, pointed out that stations such as the one operating in Tychowo are a vital element of the country's gasification and switching the fuel for the Polish economy from coal to gas, which is a transitional fuel in Poland's energy transformation. - As the major gas distribution system operator in the country, Polska Spółka Gazownictwa is a crucial link in Poland's energy transformation. As a supplier of green gaseous fuel, it will facilitate the safe transition in this transformation, he added.
