German hard coal power plant reductions

·2-min read

Sep 2 (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 and logistics bottlenecks across transport systems, that are now fast-tracking energy supply.[nL1N2ZG0L1]

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.
