Generation portfolio with conventional and renewable energies
Alongside conventional cogeneration plants in Mannheim, Kiel and Offenbach, our generation plants also include waste and biomass-powered plants in Mannheim, Offenbach, Leuna, Königs Wusterhausen and Flörsheim-Wicker as well as in Plymouth and Ridham Dock. One particular focus here is on working with highly efficient cogeneration. This portfolio is supplemented by our growing renewable energies capacities. Here, our strategic focus is on onshore wind turbines and on using biomass to generate electricity, heating energy and biogas.
Energy from waste and biomass
With an incineration capacity of 1.6 million tonnes of waste a year, our group of companies is one of Germany’s leading operators of energy from waste plants. We have a nationwide presence, with cogeneration plants in Mannheim, Offenbach and Leuna and biomass power plants in Mannheim, Flörsheim-Wicker and Königs Wusterhausen. We are successfully drawing on our all-round competence when it comes to the ecological incineration of waste in the UK market as well. In Plymouth, in south-western England, we operate a state-of-the-art energy from waste plant with combined heating energy generation. This plant incinerates the non-recyclable waste from the city of Plymouth and part of the county of Devon. Our biomass power plant with CHP capability at Ridham Dock to the east of London works exclusively with non-recyclable and waste timber from regional sources.
Grids are crucial for supply reliability
High-performance grids are the basis for reliably distributing energy and water. Our group has electricity, gas, district heating and water grids with a total length of around 16,500 kilometres. In 2006, the tasks involved in ensuring safe, reliable and efficient distribution grid operations were assigned to independent companies. Netrion GmbH acts as the common distribution grid operator for the grids in Mannheim and Offenbach, while the grids in Kiel are operated by SWKiel Netz GmbH.
How seriously we take the responsibility this involves can be seen in the high level of supply reliability at our locations. In terms of supply interruptions, we regularly fall short of the national average, itself impressively low compared with other European countries.back to top
