The visit began with a short presentation of the JSW Group. Daniel Ozon, President of the company’s Management Board, spoke about Jastrzebska Spólka Weglowa as a contemporary company focused on innovative technologies and striving for development: “We have very ambitious plans and we are not afraid to talk about them. Hydrogen, for example, may become an emission-free fuel for modern transport in the future. We also want to get involved in the production of carbon fibers. This is a major step towards innovation and proof that Jastrzebska Spólka Weglowa has immense potential.”
During a meeting with journalists, Prime Minister Morawiecki said: “I am very happy that another coke oven battery is being built here in Zaglebie Dabrowskie. This is in line with the plan for the Silesian Voivodship. Now there is battery no. 4, then there will be battery no. 3 and other investments. Modern economy is based on steel production. Investments such as those in this coking plant are important for modern industry. This is where we show that the plan for the Silesian Voivodship has been partially implemented as promised. This is an important matter that will allow us to maintain employment through new investments.”
Jastrzebska Spólka Weglowa intends to increase its coking coal production, but it will also use hydrogen derived from coke oven gas to power hydrogen buses.
The Prime Minister commented: “I deeply believe that the plans will be realised, because there is no modern Poland without innovative industry.”
