In September 2015, CVC Funds acquired PKP Energetyka from PKP S.A., Poland's national railway holding company. PKP Energetyka is the cross-country electricity distributor to the Polish railway network and other business customers.
It also provides nationwide maintenance and emergency response services to the railway network, operates fuel stations for diesel locomotives and is active in electricity and gas reselling. The company employs 7,200 people, owns 20,000km of distribution network and operates a fleet of highly specialised trains and rail equipment across Poland.
We are looking forward to working with CVC and supporting the on-going multi-year investment programme as we seek to develop the business to be able to perform on par with the best-in-class global operators in the industry.
