From coal-fired power station to hydrogen site
HEnW – Hamburger Energiewerke – Hamburg’s municipal power supplier – acquired the former coal-fired power station at Moorburg from owner Vat- tenfall on 1 March. In the wake of Germany’s phase-out of coal, following just six years in operation the facility was decommission in July 2021. Ham- burger Energiewerke now aims to construct a hydrogen infrastructure based in Moorburg. A great variety of components of the previous thermal power station are set to be used to supply the city in future on the basis of renewable energy. Including HEnW, a group of companies is far advanced with planning for a 100-megawatt electrolysis plant. This should boost Hamburg as a leading hydrogen site. Saskia Haßkamp (sh)
