A SPACE INSPIRED BY HISTORY

DISCOVER
ELEKTROWNIA POWIŚLE

Our history goes back to 1904. It was then that the local authorities announced a call for tenders for the construction of the power plant, which continued to be expanded in subsequent years, becoming one of the largest and most modern power plants in Poland.

THE HISTORY OF
THE POWER PLANT

The dynamic development of the facility was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II. During the occupation, the then-director of the power plant, Stanisław Skibniewski aka “Cubryna” hired people to protect them from roundups out in the streets. In 1944, the Powiśle Power Plant became the backdrop for the dramatic events of the Warsaw Uprising. It was here that the members of the resistance, mainly plant workers, worked tirelessly to keep the city supplied with power.

The power plant resumed its activity after the end of the war, only to officially cease generating power in 2001 after years of prosperity.

A new page in the history of the place started to be written 15 years later, when the site was acquired by Tristan Capital Partners and White Star Real Estate. From the very beginning, the authors of the redevelopment project wanted to breathe new life into the old walls of the site, changing the purpose of the post-industrial buildings while preserving their character. We’ve put a lot of effort into retaining as many original elements of the over 100-years-old structure, which we have eventually reopened for the inhabitants of Warsaw.

The historical value of the place was a rich source of inspiration for us. Every single element was treated with respect for its extraordinary historical value. We used traditional brick-baking methods. The items reclaimed from the power plant buildings were repurposed to become elements of the new facility’s unique interior design. The regeneration of the facility is perfectly in line with the global trend of restoring historic spaces that combine history with modernity and reshape urban landscapes.

2020 POWIŚLE POWER PLANT REOPENS AS ELEKTROWNIA POWIŚLE

Warsaw authorities issued a call for tenders for the construction of a power plant for the dynamically developing capital city.

Due to the development of the investment, it soon became one of the largest and most modern power plants in Poland.

After Poland regained its independence, the dynamically developing Warsaw needed more energy, which resulted in the further expansion of the facility.

This is where the construction of a railway line used to transport raw materials to the Powiśle Power Plant began. The line was complete in 1924.

The Powiśle Power Plant becomes a refuge for Warsaw insurgents while still producing energy for the besieged city.

Shortly after the war, efforts aimed at rebuilding the power plant begin.

The power plant officially stops producing electricity.

The power plant is purchased by Tristan Capital Partners and White Star Real Estate.

Together, we are writing a new chapter in the history of the Powiśle Power Plant.
