EnBW announces the billions project Pumpspeicherkraftwerk Atdorf

             The project has long been under no good star: in 2014, RWE withdrew from the planning for the Pumpspeicherkraftwerk Atdorf. Environmentalists have always had strong resistance. EnBW, the energy supplier, is also pulling the pull-cord.


        The huge Pumpspeicherkraftwerk Atdorf in the southern Black Forest is on the way out. The billion project will not be pursued further, the energy supplier EnBW announced on Wednesday in Karlsruhe. After evaluating a three-week discussion session, he concluded that further cost- and time-intensive planning work would be necessary and that a time for implementation would be uncertain. Moreover, the energy and political framework conditions are unfavorable.
1.6 billion euros construction costsThe power plant should be built by Schluchseewerk AG, a subsidiary of EnBW and RWE. The Energiesiese from North Rhine-Westphalia had already adopted the project in 2014. The 1.6 billion euro project was controversial from the outset. Municipalities, environmental associations and citizens' initiatives rejected it. According to the plans initiated in 2008, a 75-meter-high Staumauer and two artificial lakes were to be built.


          Two new reservoirs and more than 25 km of underground structures were to be built for the Pumpspeicherwerk Atdorf.

    EnBW has to write off several million euros with the end of the project. "For the EnBW Group, the preliminary costs are a total double-digit million figure," said a spokeswoman for the Heilbronner voice. Concrete numbers did not call them. Swiss EnBW subsidiary Energiedienst Holding AG, which holds a quarter of EnBW's stake in the project, had already announced that the demolition of the project would weigh it at eleven million euros.
Pleased environmentalistsThe Umweltverband BUND reacted with satisfaction. "The fact that EnBW AG has refrained from building the Pumpspeicherwerk Atdorf amidst strictly protected nature is a good news for people, the environment and nature on site," said Sylvia Pilarsky-Grosch, the country's managing director. Through the plant many very rare animals and plants would have lost their habitat irretrievbriglichlich. Above all, the interventions in the hydrological area of ​​the area would have been detrimental from the point of view of the BUND.
For Franz Untersteller, Minister of Energy and Environment, the decision is not quite unexpected. But she is regrettable in the matter, said the Green politician in Stuttgart. He would have liked EnBW and its subsidiary to find a way to successfully complete the planning.
The Federal Association of the Energy and Water Industry (BDEW) pointed out that electricity from pumped-storage power plants would be burdened twice by grid charges and was therefore not very cost-effective. "Finally, we need a performance-oriented remuneration of flexible storage services," said Stefan Kapferer, chairman of the BDEW chief executive, in Berlin.
EnBW is geared towards its goal By now, EBB wants to set new priorities for storage technologies. Among other things, the company cooperates with Bosch in the construction of a lithium-ion storage facility in Heilbronn. However, the expansion of existing pumped storage power plants in other locations, such as in Forbach in the Black Forest, will be further advanced.
Pumped storage plants can contribute to the safety of the power supply. If more electricity is available than when wind is blowing and the sun is shining, strong pumps carry water from a lower basin to a higher basin. If there is no electricity in the network – because, for example, there is a lull in the night and wind and solar electricity are not available – the water is directed downwards from the top through pipes or shafts. Turbines then drive generators. Atdorf should have a capacity of 1,400 megawatts and thus be able to produce as much electricity as a large nuclear power plant in the short term.
