This project originated as the redevelopment of the former Leipheim Airbase with a power plant. The capacity was up to 1200 MW.[2] It was developed by SWU Stadtwerke Ulm, and evolved into a 600 MW plant.[3] In February of 2021 Lausitz Energie (LEAG) obtained 100% interest in the project, now 300 MW.[4] Siemens Energy will handle construction.[5]
