Information on Reuter West CHP plant and its history
The Reuter West CHP plant is located in the north-west of Berlin and is made up of two structurally identical power plant blocks, which were put into operation in 1987 and 1989 respectively. In line with the environmentally compatible combined heat and power (CHP) principle, this plant generates electricity and heat simultaneously, raising the fuel efficiency rate to 80 percent in the process.
The steam boiler are fired by hard coal and equipped with efficient flue gas scrubbers. Residual materials from the combustion process and flue gas cleaning are treated and fed back into the economic cycle as high-quality raw materials.
