German municipal utility, Stadtwerke Kiel, is developing Europe's most modern gas engine heating power plant on the eastern shore of the Kieler Förde inlet in northern Germany.
Named KIEL (Kiel's intelligent energy solution), the 190MW gas-fired power plant will use 20 highly efficient gas engines for power generation.
With a thermal output of 192MW, the power plant will supply district heating for the city of Kiel. A feasibility study for the plant was completed in 2012 and the construction license was granted on 19 September 2016.
Estimated to cost €290m ($331.8m), the power plant was approved by the board of Stadtwerke Kiel in November 2016 and is expected to be commissioned in 2018.
