Quick facts: Staudinger-5 has a supercritical boiler and turboset running at a thermal efficiency of 43%. It was an important design step leading to subsequent German new-builds. Unit-5 has SCR and a limestone FGD system and burns a wide variety of hard coals sourced from around the world. No stack is installed as the exhaust from the FGD is routed through the hyperbolic cooling tower. Stadtwerke Hannover was an original owner in Staudinger but sold its 25.2% stake in two tranches in 2009 and 2010, respectively.
