Hemweg 9 - a new gas fired plant

Hemweg 9 - Gas plant
The Hemweg Plant consists of two units: Hemweg 8 and Hemweg 9.

Hemweg 9

Power plant Hemweg 9 is a brand new gas fired plant taken in operation in 2012.

The plant has a capacity of  440 MW and an efficiency of 59% – among the highest available for gas-fired plants. The plant is  fitted with a built-in unit to capture nitrogen oxides (NOx), which  contributes to very low emissions.

Initially, the power plant  only generates electricity, but it is designed to supply heat as well (cogeneration), making it possible to increase its total energy efficiency further in the future.
