Bexbach-C power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Germany and coal.|
Bexbach-C power station is a 773-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Saarland, Germany.
In November 2016, plant owner Steag GmbH said it plans to mothball nearly a third of its German power generation capacity, including Bexbach, citing a massive decline in wholesale prices.

The 773 MW plant was commissioned in 1983.
In September 2014 STEAG agreed to the takeover of EnBW's share in the power station. EnBW held 75 percent of Bexbach-C and STEAG owned the remaining 25 percent.
