Increase of energy efficiency, decrease of specific CO2-load and life-extension.
In November, Alstom was awarded a retrofit contract for the thermal power station "Hafen 6" by swb Erzeugung GmbH, a regional energy supplier for the city of Bremen and the north-west of Germany. The modernization of the steam turbine, which will be carried out in 2013, shall result in the increase of energy efficiency of Block 6 as well as in a life-extension of the plant until 2025. Today, the plant is more than 30 years old. Due to the increased feeding of renewable energies into the grid, the plant shall be operated at higher flexibility in the future, to be able to respond quicker to variations in the grid.
