This power station operates at the Aschaffenburg Paper Mill, providing 47 MW of combined heat-and-power to DS Smith's paper recycling facility.[1] It replaced an older gas-fired turbine that consumed the same amount of fuel, but generated only half the current capacity.[2]

The new turbine is rated at 47 MW, and features a combined-cycle plant with CHP, that can use both natural gas and a mix of hydrogen as part of it's fuel.[3]
