RWE Technology GmbH

RWE Technology GmbH was formally established September 2009 due to changed investment priorities within the RWE Group.

Based in Essen (Germany), the company was responsible for construction and modernization of RWE’s Power Generation Fleet. Some 600 engineers and technical staff, sales people and lawyers form a central pool of expertise on a subject that was previously spread across various companies and countries. RWE Technology GmbH is based in Essen, and its subsidiary, RWE Technology UK Ltd. is in Swindon near London.

The act of separating out and pooling the Group’s power plant engineering is wholly consistent with the growth strategy of the Group. The new company will ensure that any future RWE power plants are also among the most economically efficient and technically advanced of their kind. “RWE Technology will implement the largest investment programme in electricity generation in the history of RWE. Climate protection is of particular significance in this regard”, said Dr. Ulrich Jobs, Chief Operating Officer (COO) on behalf of the Executive Board of RWE AG.

Matthias Hartung, management spokesman for RWE Technology: “By pooling our new-build operations, RWE will be able to maximise its major projects in both a technical and economic sense. They will be run according to uniform, Group-wide standards. What is more, in future RWE will be speaking as one voice to all subcontractors and suppliers.” RWE’s largest power plant investments include its projects in Grevenbroich-Neurath and Eemshaven in the Netherlands, as well as those in Staythorpe and Pembroke in the United Kingdom.
