German hard coal power plant reductions due low water levels

·1-min read
Steam rises from the cooling towers of the lignite power plant complex of German energy supplier and utility RWE in Neurath

(Reuters) - The following table lists reductions in scheduled production at German hard coal-fired power generation plants that have been necessitated by low water levels hampering barge shipments of feedstock to the sites.

Utility companies have been flagging problems about shallow water under rules of play set by the power exchange EEX, where they released the information in the ad hoc section and on related transparency sites, where plant data are presented long-term, reflecting all operational planning details and incidents.

The water problems have eased somewhat but could worsen again later this week.
