Operation and maintenance of power plants

One of the most important challenges for the employees is enhancing flexibility in the power plant fleet and in our opencast mines. Increasing electricity price volatility requires the extension of market-oriented generation schedule dispatch and an increase in the flexibility parameters of the power stations.

RWE Power´s employees ensure possible operation by increasing availabilities in a market-oriented manner and by optimizing cost management.

Another medium-term challenge is the further development of our power plant fleet, in particular by optimizing existing plants and by selectively constructing new ones. This includes an extension of the economic lives of existing plants and the selective renewal of power plants.

In order to manage these challenging tasks, the company constantly looks for new employees within different technological fields.
