Brunsbüttel Power Station (GDF Suez)

From Global Energy Monitor

Brunsbüttel Power Station (GDF Suez) was a proposed coal-fired power plant by GDF Suez Energie Deutschland AG. It was to be built in the industrial zone at Elbe harbour of Brunsbüttel, a city in the state of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It was planned to have an installed capacity of 800 megawatts (MW) with investment estimated at €1bn.[1][2] In 2011 it was reported that GDF Suez had abandoned the project in December 2010, due to long permitting procedures, the lack of partners and plans for a nuclear power extension.[3]
