RWE AG Plans to Shut Down Power Plants

RWE Generation plans to shut down further power plants with a capacity of a total of 1,000 megawatts (MW). This means in detail, that 110 MW of the Goldenbergwerk lignite power plant in Hrth, will be removed from the grid in the third quarter of 2015. At the beginning of 2016 Unit C of the Westfalen hard coal power plant in Hamm will follow (285 MW). The network operators and the Federal Network Agency have already been informed about these measures. If market conditions do not change, the part of Unit K fuelled by hard coal in the Gersteinwerk plant in Werne (610 MW) will cease to operate in the first quarter of 2017, when an extensive overhaul is scheduled which would no longer be justifiable from an investment perspective under the current economic conditions. The gas turbines at this combined unit (110 MW) would continue to operate. A total of 640 employees are employed at the three stations. Staff cuts affecting around 180 employees in connection with the capacity measures announced are expected. The company wants to deal with the necessary HR measures associated with the power plant shutdowns in a socially acceptable manner.

RWE Generation to Close Three Power Plants in Germany

RWE Generation is planning to close three power plants in Germany with a total capacity of 1,000MW, amid declining demand for conventional energy. The company is considering closing the 110MW Goldenbergwerk lignite power plant in Hürth in the third quarter of 2015, and Unit C of the 285MW Westfalen hard coal power plant in Hamm in early 2016. The part of Unit K fuelled by hard coal in the 610MW Gersteinwerk plant will be shut down in the first quarter of 2017. The shutting down of the power plants will affect 180 of the 640 jobs at the three stations.

Rwe Ag Reports Earnings Results for the First Half of 2014; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2014

RWE AG reported earnings results for the first half of 2014. For the period, the company reported net profit plunged by 62% to €749 million. Operating profit tumbled 40% to €2.271 billion on 9.6% drop in revenues to €25.087 billion. Profits fell in the first six months of the year owing to low demand for heating and weak electricity prices. RWE announced it is sticking to its forecast for the full year 2014. Group sales would amount to around €51 billion, underlying profit to €6.4 billion to €6.8 billion and net profit to €1.2 billion to €1.4 billion. The company expects annual CapEx to be in the order of €2 billion.
