Polish energy provider Dalkia announced a voluntary dismissals programme at SPEC, Warsaw's municipal heating system provider, concerning 350 workers. Dalkia had acquired SPEC in October 2011 from the Warsaw self-government.

A spokeswomen of Dalkia has now announced that 350 employees are expected to enter a voluntary dismissals programme until March 2012.

These redundancies are a first step in Dalkia setting up a restructuring plan for SPEC aiming at workforce reduction and scaling down of infrastructure. The restructuring plan is expected to be announced in March 2012. The company plans to cut up to 700 of 1,700 jobs, but more details on the next round of redundancies are still unknown.

Dalkia has been operating in Poland since 1996 and is the largest private operator of heating networks in Poland.
