Background

The 246 MW subcritical coal plant was put into operation in 1986. The addition of two 425-MW CCGT blocks at Mellach was approved in May 2008.[1]

The 246 MW coal unit is planned for retirement in 2020.[2] It was retired in April 2020.[3]

In 2019 Verbund launched the "Hotflex" pilot plant at this site in cooperation with Graz University of Technology and Sunfire to research hydrogen power. [4]
