Stadtwerke Bonn is the municipal energy and water supplier of City of Bonn. Originally a coal power plant, Heizkraftwerk Nord, had long been transformed into a gas plant. Between spring 2010 and summer 2013, now the former gas plant has been converted to a gas and steam turbine plant. The plants produce about 50 percent of Bonn’s power requirement. The reconstruction increased the generation of domestic electricity from 230.000 to 575.000 MWh. Moreover the principle of combined heat and power (CHP) is strengthened, thus the degree of efficiency is increased. The total efficiency will account more than 86 percent and the performance ratio of the thermal energy provided by the waste processing plant Bonn is increased by about 18 percent to 74 percent. This leads to an overall saving of 194.445 tons of CO2 emissions, which makes the Construction of the HKW Nord to one of the biggest climate protection project of the whole region.Read More Read Less
