Quick facts: This plant was first started up in 1926 by Berliner Stadtische Elektrizitatswerke Akt-Ges (BEWAG). AEG was the turnkey contractor for three 90-MW units. When opened in Jul 1927, it was said to be the largest and most modern coal-fired plant in Europe. The PS was named after Germany power engineering pioneer Georg Klingenberg. The plant was swtiched from condensing only to CHP service from 1970 forward. In 2009, Vattenfall announed plans to modernize the remaining sets and switch the plant from lignite to natural gas. The project completed in late May 2017 at a cost of €100mn. Plans for an 800-MW USC unit at the Klingenberg site were terminated in Mar 2009.
