WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland’s wealthiest man Jan Kulczyk would be interested in bidding for state-controlled utilities Enea ENAE.WA and Energa if they are put up for sale, the head of his investment vehicle was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
“We are a natural investor for those groups,” Dariusz Mioduski, the chief executive of Kulczyk Investments told daily Rzeczpospolita.
“If they are put up for sale, we will consider filing a bid,” he said.
Poland’s treasury minister, who oversees state assets, has said he did not plan to sell Enea for now and expected Energa to be floated on the stock exchange in 2013.
Polenergia, a utility owned by Kulczyk Investments, is currently bidding for windfarm developer Polish Energy Partners PEPP.WA.
It also plans to build Elektrownia Polnoc, a power plant in the north of Poland comprising two 1,000-megawatt coal-fired power blocks, and develop offshore windfarms.
