Vattenfall: Vattenfall secures district heating supply in Hamburg

Vattenfall has decided to invest EUR 83.5 million in order to
refurbish the combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Wedel. The
investment is necessary to secure the city's heat supply for the next
couple of years and to comply with environmental standards.

Vattenfall and the City of Hamburg are collaborating to find a
long-term solution to secure the City's heat supply and to replace
the hard coal-fired CHP plant.

"In parallel to the refurbishment of the plant in Wedel Vattenfall is
developing a concept to achieve climate neutrality in Hamburg heat
operations by 2050. It could include heat storage, power-to-heat,
industrial heat, decentral solutions and possibly gas-CHP that will
replace the existing plant. The concept will be developed in close
alignment with the City of Hamburg," says Tuomo Hatakka, Head of
Business Area Heat.

Starting in summer 2016, the Wedel plant will be refurbished to ensure
the city's heat supply for a few more years and compliance with new
environmental standards. In particular, this work will involve the
turbines, boiler and control system of the plant. Most of the
refurbishing activities are planned for the maintenance periods in
the summer months of 2016 to 2018.
