Buch Cogeneration Plant
The Buch Cogeneration Plant (CHP) of Vattenfall Europe Wärme AG supplies district heating to the Buch Hospital and other areas of the City District of Buch.
To increase the security of supply, in 2013-2014, the 10kV transfer station was modernized, and a new combined cycle power plant with an electrical output of approximately 10 MW was built.
Additional capacities were planned in conjunction with the production of secondary control energy (startup time of less than 5 minutes) and contracted from Elpro EPC. The main components of the contract are the following:
- Electric water heater of 5 MW (EPC)
- Pipeline construction for connection to the existing system (EPC)
- Fittings (EPC)
- Extension of the 10kV switchgear
- 690V AC switchgear
