Construction of two hydrogen-ready combined cycle power plants in Germany

Construction of two hydrogen-ready combined cycle power plants in Germany
Client: EnBW
Start date: 2022, April
Country: Germany
Actual state: Under construction

We are part of an international consortium (Sener, General Electric and Bonatti) for the construction, maintenance and servicing work of two hydrogen-ready combined cycle power plants in Heilbronn and Altbach/Deizisau, Germany. This is a major energy transition project that will existing coal power plant sites into natural gas and, from the 2030s, green hydrogen plants.

The plants will be built on land adjacent to these coal plants and will share with them certain services such as the cooling tower, the workshop and warehouse or the control room.

We are part of an international consortium (Sener, General Electric and Bonatti) for the construction, maintenance and servicing work of two hydrogen-ready combined cycle power plants in Heilbronn and Altbach/Deizisau, Germany.

The plants will be built on land adjacent to these coal plants and will share with them certain services such as the cooling tower, the workshop and warehouse or the control room.

A total of around 1,300 megawatts of electricity generation capacity is set to be produced at the two power plant sites, with an initial capacity to burn 20 % hydrogen (H2) and they will be technologically prepared for an expansion of up to 100 %.

The plants are both located on the banks of a navigable river, along which heavy equipment is transported to the plants.

Together with Bonatti, Sener is responsible for the complete detailed engineering, the supply of the BoP (balance of plant) and the complete construction of the power plant buildings and its chimney with its foundation.

Prepared for 100 % operation with H2
A boost for the energy transition in Europe
1,300 megawatts of electricity generation capacity
