#Poland – Better water and energy infrastructure thanks to EU funds

| October 18, 2018

Over €94 million from Cohesion Policy funds is invested in two projects for better water and energy infrastructures in Poland. First, €51m from the European Regional Development Fund will help build a gas pipeline between the towns of Tworóg and Tworzeń, in the Śląskie region. 

This pipeline is part of the North-South Gas Corridor, a project of common interest for Trans-European Energy Infrastructure. Around €472m of Cohesion Policy funds has been earmarked for different sections of the corridor during the 2014-2020 programming period. Commissioner for Regional policy Corina Creţu said: “This gas pipeline supported by European funds is another brick in the wall of the European energy market. It will help provide Poland with more affordable, secure and sustainable energy.”

In addition, €43m from the Cohesion Fund is invested in the modernization and extension of water and wastewater network in the agglomeration of Radom, in the Mazowieckie region. Commissioner Creţu added: “Once again, Cohesion Policy delivers: this project will contribute to improving the quality of life of Polish citizens by allowing them to have access to better water supply.”

Once completed in 2022, the project will connect 7,000 more inhabitants to a modern water supply network and 15,000 to the upgraded wastewater collection and treatment system.
