(Montel)  Polish utility PGE said on Tuesday it will close its 370 MW lignite-fired unit Belchatow 1 by June next year due to environmental reasons.

The unit may be scrapped sooner, it said in a Remit message, citing “worsening technical conditions”.

It provided no further details.

The company was not immediately available for comment.

Last year, rival utility Tauron said it would decommission around 1 GW of ageing coal-fired capacity due to tighter environmental restrictions.
