Buschhaus Power Station

Buschhaus Power Station

Buschhaus Power Station is a lignite-fired power station near Helmstedt in Lower Saxony, Germany. It is operated by Braunschweigische Kohlen-Bergwerke AG (BKB), a German joint stock company. The station's chimney stands 307 meters (1007 ft, 3 in) tall, making it among the tallest in Germany. The power station was modernized in 2002 to increase its efficiency. It has an output capacity of 380 megawatts.

Plans for Buschhaus Power Stations were drawn up at the end of the 1970s, despite the lack of demand for more electricity in West Germany at the time. The new plant created new jobs not only in construction and operation, but also in coal mining.
