A German power station running on lignite and gas is to go through a €60m ($67m) modernization to turn it into a combined heat and power plant.

The Am Hohen Feld power station is operated by Stadtwerke Frankfurt (Oder) GmbH and since 1997 has been supplying electricity via lignite and natural gas to around 50,000 homes and businesses, plus district heating to some 23,000 residential and commercial customers in the town on the banks of the river Oder.

The upgrade by MAN Energy Solutions is due for completion around late 2021 and will see the plant instead operate on five of MAN’s  20V35/44G natural gas engines, which will produce 51 MW of energy and 50 MW of district heating.
