Background

The Biblis power plant was originally a nuclear power plant, providing 1200 MW of power until it was decommissioned in 2013.[2] RWE plans to build 11 identical gas-fired turbines with a combined output of 300MW with the intention to commission it by the end of 2022.[1]

The new turbines will be "low-carbon", with the capacity to use hydrogen as part of the fuel mix.[3]
