Bernkastel operating group
RWE Power AG operates 24 run-of-river hydroelectric stations and storage power plants on behalf of RWE Innogy on the Moselle, Saar and Nahe rivers and smaller tributaries. These 24 power plants are allocated to the Bernkastel operations and have a total capacity of 254 MW. The plants are controlled by the Fankel central control station.
The high availability of the power plants is ensured by a workforce of 80 and an additional 20 or so apprentices. The maintenance work for the power stations in the Bernkastel operating group requires the deployment of qualified specialists. Here, RWE Power fields well-trained and experienced staff. Future needs in the way of qualified personnel are being covered by the Bernkastel and Herdecke operating groups who train their own specialists at the Bernkastel operation in the vocations of electronics technician for industrial systemsand industrial mechanic.
