HKW Linden
Location: NI
Operator: Stadtwerke Hannover AG
Configuration: 255-MW, 2+1 CCGT with one V64.3A gas turbine and one 6001FA gas turbine
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 1998-2013
HRSG supplier: NEM, Standardkessel Baumgarte
T/G supplier: Siemens, GE
EPC: Siemens
Quick facts: HKW Linden is a landmark in Hannover and the triple boiler towers gave rise to the nickname "Die drei warmen Brüder." The plant started off as a trio of 55-MW coal-fired CHP units. These were converted to natural gas and oil fuels. The last steam set was then converted to operation in combined-cycle in 1995 and when it retired in Mar 2011, the machine had run for over 270,000hrs. Another GT was added in 2013 along with a new HRSG and a new steam set from Siemens Görlitz. This 96-MW SST-800 machine was the largest built to that data in the Görlitz factory and is powered by both gas turbines.

Lingen CC
Location: NI
Operator: RWE AG
Configuration: 850-MW, 2+1 CCGT with GT26 gas turbines
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 2010
HRSG supplier: Alstom
T/G supplier: Alstom
EPC: Alstom
Quick facts: This €500mn power station was opened on 14 Apr 2010 by State Premier Christian Wulff and RWE CEO Juergen Grossmann. The Emsland Lingen site already hosts a nuclear unit and several conventional gas-fired blocks. It is well connected to the national grid as well as accessible to five gas pipelines. The peak construction workforce at Lingen CC amouted to 750 people. They installed over 20,000t of concrete, 1,500km of piping and over 400km of cable. The HRSGs are the first in Europe to have once-through HP sections. Thermal efficiency is 59%+. The turnkey order was awarded in Sep 2005.

Mittelsburen GKB
Location: HB
Operator: GKB - Gemeinschaftskraftwerk Bremen GmbH & Co KG
Configuration: 445-MW single-shaft CCGT with 9001FB gas turbine
Fuel: natural gas
Operation: 2016
HRSG supplier: STF
T/G supplier: GE
EPC: GE, Cobra
Quick facts: In Dec 2005, swb said it would decide within the year whether to build a new €700mn, 800-MW coal-fired plant at Mittelsburen in Bremen adjacent to the ArcelorMittal steel works. The coal-fired unit was cancelled in Aug 2007 and, instead, in Sep 2009, swb tendered for a CCGT block . In Mar 2011, a consortium of GE and ACS Cobra was contracted for a €445mn single-shaft CCGT. The foundation stone was laid in Nov 2011. A variety of banks and financial institutions arranged and/or supported project financing including Bremer Landesbank, Landesbank Baden-Wurttemberg, Commerzbank, Bayern LB, DekaBank, Helaba Landesbank, and KFW-IPEX Bank. Although the plant began production in 2015, commercial operation was not handed over until 1 Dec 2016 due to construction issues. GKB is owned by swb (51.76%), Mainova (25.1%), a municipal utility grouping called TOBI (16.19%), Ovag Energie (4.95%), and Deutsche Bahn AG (2%). DB also has a contract to take 37% of the new block’s output.

Location: BB
Operator: Atel Holding
Configuration: 70-MW, 1+1 combined cycle with 6001B gas turbine
Fuel: natural gas, syngas (design fuel)
Operation: 1997 (ret)
HRSG supplier: Deutsche Babcock
T/G supplier: GE, ABB
Quick facts: Sekundarrohstoff-Verwertungs-zentrum Schwarze Pumpe (SVZ) originally operated a brown-coal preparation plant near Cottbus. In 1995, SVZ began processing solid and liquid coal prep wastes into syngas. In 1997, SVZ built a CCGT block as part of its gasification works and this ran on syngas until 2007 when syngas production was discontinued. In Jul 2008, the power plant was acquired by Atel and run on natural gas from 2009 until the plant was closed iat year-end 2012.
