RWE Generation: further power plants to be shut down

RWE Generation plans to shut down further power plants with a capacity of a total of 1,000 megawatts (MW). This means in detail, that 110 MW of the Goldenbergwerk lignite power plant in Hürth, will be removed from the grid in the third quarter of 2015. At the beginning of 2016 Unit C of the Westfalen hard coal power plant in Hamm will follow (285 MW). The network operators and the Federal Network Agency have already been informed about these measures. If market conditions do not change, the part of Unit K fuelled by hard coal in the Gersteinwerk plant in Werne (610 MW) will cease to operate in the first quarter of 2017, when an extensive overhaul is scheduled which would no longer be justifiable from an investment perspective under the current economic conditions.more
