Can a chemical company offset carbon equal to a town of 30,000 people?
Evonik is the largest specialty chemicals company in the world, operating one of Europe’s largest chemical parks. They were looking for an economical and sustainable supply to meet their huge energy demands. Our unique challenge was to construct a new power plant without disrupting the site’s continuous production – whilst meeting the highest safety requirements and within a very short construction period.
Our teams worked closely together with Evonik from the start to find the optimum solution. That meant designing and building an entirely new power plant across 2.5 years, integrating the supply with Evonik’s production and the energy markets to avoid disruption.
We built a highly-efficient combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant to increase the competitiveness of the site. Our cutting edge plant has a power-generating capacity of 60 MW and a thermal capacity of 100 MW. It’s highly flexible, meaning it’s adaptable to the conditions of the energy market and Evonik’s own production requirements.
Evonik now operates a modern, highly efficient and flexible power plant which is active in today’s dynamic energy markets. It saves 280,000 tonnes of carbon per year with an overall efficiency of almost 90%.
Can you lose 200 tonnes of CO2 through smarter energy controls?
We worked with Marks & Spencer to achieve 34% energy savings across 550 stores – helping them save money and reach their ambitious carbon reduction targets in the process.
Can you make ice cream out of rubber?
We're turning wasted heat into spending power for Gasrußwerke and helping its neighbours Coldstore to benefit from low-cost energy.
Can a data centre be used to power an entire community?
We partnered with Binero Group AB to develop a unique and sustainable data centre that provides our customers in Vallentuna with one third of the town’s district heating needs.
