New construction of the Moorburg power plant
The MoorburgPower Plant in the Port of Hamburg is a 2 x 827 MW twin-unit plant. The hard coal used by the plant is supplied through the plant’s own dock facilities. A 650 MWth district heating extraction system was installed, but has not yet been connected to the district heating network. The cooling of the power plant is designed as a once-through cooling system, with water extracted from the Süderelbesection of the River Elbe; alternatively, closed-circuit cooling via the hybrid cooling tower is also possible.
VPC accompanied the project from the conceptual design phase to the commissioning phase and acted as Architect Engineer. The scope of works for the construction of the power plant was divided into 70 lots, all suppliers and interfaces were coordinated by VPC.
