EnBW Selects GE Vernova for Gas Power Equipment in CHP Plants
German utility EnBW has chosen GE Vernova's gas power business to supply H-Class natural gas-fired combined cycle power generation equipment for two of its combined heat and power (CHP) plants near Stuttgart, Germany.

These plants will replace current coal-fired power facilities and have the capability to run on a fuel mix of up to 100 percent hydrogen by the 2030s.
The contract encompasses building the two plants in Heilbronn and Altbach/Deizisau, as well as providing software solutions, maintenance, and services for a period of ten years. EnBW's CHPs are expected to be operational by the end of 2026, generating 1.34 GW of electricity, enough to meet the needs of 2.4 million German households, while also supplying steam for district heating in the Stuttgart area.
By transitioning from coal to natural gas, carbon emissions can be reduced by up to 60 percent. Additionally, GE Vernova's gas turbines help reduce emissions of other pollutants such as mercury, NOx, SOx, and particulate matter. The project involves a consortium with engineering, procurement, and construction companies Bonatti and SENER.
EnBW aims to accelerate its transition toward renewable energy and green hydrogen, with a goal of being carbon-neutral by 2035.
These new power plants are a significant step toward achieving those objectives, and they are designed to be highly efficient and flexible once operational, helping to improve power supply security and adapt to grid fluctuations in Germany.
GE Vernova is committed to providing advanced gas turbine technology to accelerate the phase-out of coal and increase the share of renewables as part of the journey towards zero-carbon, gas-based power generation with hydrogen.
