As part of the brown coal negotiations, we offered to decommission the block – but with compensation – earlier than 2035. However, the German government chose the plan for the power plant that is now agreed: a longer service life but without the compensation that is being received by other operators for their power plants. This timetable brings planning certainty to Lippendorf, the employees and ourselves,” explains Georg Stamatelopoulos, who signed the contract on behalf of EnBW. Block S at the Lippendorf power plant, in the district of Leipzig, has an electrical output of 875 megawatts (net) and is EnBW’s last remaining brown coal power plant. It is operated by LEAG AG, which also owns the second block at the power plant.
