RWE to utilise government tenders for hydrogen-ready power plant in Germany

RWE has announced plans to build a hydrogen-ready combined-cycle gas turbine (CCHT) power plant in Werne, Germany, with a capacity of around 800MW.

It is expected that the plant will use a fuel mix of at least 50% hydrogen content at the time of commissioning and will run on entirely hydrogen at a later stage.

With the planning approval process underway, RWE can begin implementing the project after an investment decision is made – which is anticipated once grid connection and regulatory framework are in place. H2 View understands that the plant could start producing electricity by 2030.
