Elektrownia Powiśle appears in new splendor

For the implementation of this fantastic project, IGP Pulvertechnik AG was asked to supply around four tons of our IGP-HWFclassic 591T powder coating for the exterior aluminum panels. The architects chose this powder coating because of its exceptional quality and excellent weather resistance.

The Elektrownia Powiśle was once one of Poland’s largest and most modern power plants. The facility was built in 1904 to supply the city with electricity.

It survived two world wars with zero disruptions to the city’s power supply and was finally decommissioned in 2001.

It stood empty for eleven years until large-scale renovation work began in 2015. The architects have succeeded in linking the site’s history with the present. For example, the project managers have retained the old, historic walls of the Elektrownia Powiśle, thus preserving the old building’s exceptional character. In addition, many of the old, original elements were reused as interior fittings.

The former power plant’s fascinating history, location and architectural uniqueness have made it possible to transform the site into a new attraction that includes numerous stores, restaurants, hotels and beauty halls.

The former Elektrownia Powiśle power plant covers a total area of 55,239 m2 and is located about 15 minutes from the center of Warsaw.
