In 1930, the western power plant (now called Reuter CHP plant) was put into operation to cover Berlin's peak load. Initially, all of the plants were demolished at the end of the Second World War, but the reconstruction of the power plant began in 1948, with the assistance of the Berlin Airlift. In 1956 to 1969, the plant was converted into a combined heat and power (CHP) plant. Reuter CHP plant is currently operated with a power plant block and a turbine. The steam boiler is fired with hard coal and biomass (wood chips) and equipped with a flue gas scrubber. Steam from a neighboring waste incineration plant is used to operate the turbine.
The plant was retired in 2019.
