EnBW awards orders to GE Vernova for two CHP power stations in Germany

EnBW has awarded two orders to GE Vernova for the supply of H-class natural gas-fired combined cycle power generation equipment for two combined heat and power (CHP) power stations in Germany.

The combined capacity of the power stations located in Heilbronn and Altbach/Deizisau, near Stuttgart, in Baden-Württemberg state, will be 1.34GW.

EnBW generation portfolio management senior vice president Michael Class said: “These power plants will help to increase power supply security in Germany while continuing to phase out coal and expand a more reliable deployment of renewable energy resources in our country as we’ll be able to dispatch power quickly in response to grid fluctuations.

“In addition, the two power plants are designed to operate on up to 100% hydrogen by volume, in line with the national goal to deploy renewables and green hydrogen at large scale, but foremost in line with EnBW’s sustainability goals to be carbon-neutral by 2035.”
