Stade Power Station is a proposed 900 MW coal plant on the site of a nuclear reactor that operated from 1972 to 2003 in Bassenfleth close to the Schwinge-river mouth into the Elbe river. The project is proposed by Dow Chemical (USA).[1]

Background

There have been several previous initiatives to develop a coal plant at the Stade nuclear reactor location; all these are currently defunct:

  • DOW Deutschland / ENBW project: In April 2008 Power in Europe reported that ENBW and Dow Deutschland Anlagengesellschaft were proposing a 1,000 megawatt coal and gas fired unit for Dow's Stade site, the location of an old nuclear reactor. "The current 20-yr-old, 150-MWe plant will be decommissioned when the new plant comes on line. Partners are to explore using hydrogen from the site to generate a portion of the power and steam. Power requirement has grown to 600-MWe at the site and annual consumption amounts to 5 TWh. The new power plant could involve a coal unit with about 800-MW, with the CCGT unit, possibly fired with hydrogen, adding flexibility," Power in Europe reported.[2] The project was abandoned.
  • E.ON project: This 1,100 MW initiative was cancelled due to economic reasons in August 2012.[3][4]
  • GDF SUEZ project: This 830 MW was cancelled due to strict constraints on noise control and water pollution, according to Deutsche Umweltshilfe.[5]
