Gas turbines from Siemens Energy are providing Leipzig with a climate neutral power supply:
Siemens Energy is supplying two cutting-edge gas turbine packages for the Leipzig Süd district heating power plant in Germany. The new plant will contribute to the decarbonization of the power supply in two ways: First, the investment will make Stadtwerke Leipzig independent of district heat from the Lippendorf lignite-fired power plant. Secondly, the plant is expected to operate with 30 to 50 percent green hydrogen only a few years after start of commercial operation. The long-term goal is to operate the facility with 100 percent hydrogen. Commissioning is scheduled for the end of 2022.
