Hemweg 9 - a new gas fired plant
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.
