bullet_green   Technical Tour 1: Power plant Lippendorf & open-cast mine Vereinigtes Schleenhain

The lignite-fuelled power plant Lippendorf is part of a network of energy producers located in the Central German lignite district. The power plant has been modernized and has a capacity of 16,000 MW. In addition, it provides heating for about 60% of households in the city of Leipzig. The open-cast mine Vereinigtes Schleenhain uses a 34 km long conveyer belt system for supplying lignite to the power plant. Up to 11 million tons of raw lignite from four coal beds are annually extracted from the mine while enforcing strong environmental management practices, particularly with regard to water resources. Lippendorf/Schleenhain offers a worthwhile experience – a real must-see!
