In line with its strategy, PKN ORLEN is planning to invest approx. PLN 1 billion (€ 230 million) in increasing the output of the fertilizers production facilities at ANWIL in Włocławek. Additionally, the company is considering strengthening its strategic petrochemical assets by means of increasing the production capacity of its PVC facilities.
“ANWIL is one of the most important members of the ORLEN Group. We are focusing on further development of this company and have no plans of selling it. A strong position of ANWIL is of key importance for the development of both the ORLEN Group and the city of Włocławek and the entire Kujawsko-Pomorskie region. Thanks to the planned investments, ANWIL will significantly strengthen its position on the fertilizers market and in the area of PVC. The ORLEN Group, the local government, and the residents of the region will also enjoy the financial benefits of these actions,” Daniel Obajtek, the President of PKN ORLEN, said during a press conference held in Włocławek.
Today, the production capacity of ANWIL in terms of nitrogen fertilizers is approx. 1 million tons per year. After the expansion of the facilities in this area, the output will increase by 40%, i.e. a further 430,000 tons. There are also plans to expand the range of fertilizers with four new products.
