  • We are shaping the energy transition and developing the future - for STEAG and together with partners

    The energy market is changing rapidly: new ideas and concepts are required along the path to energy provision based on renewable energies. We can develop them - and implement them quickly.

    Within the STEAG Group, we at Trading are also responsible for opening up new fields of business. In doing this we work closely with partners from different areas. As we are integrated within the STEAG Group and have access to its knowledge and resources, complex projects can also be implemented in a short time. The large-scale battery systems are proof of our impact: the time period from the decision to implementation and marketing was just one year! The accompanying diversification of the portfolio also means that we contribute to making the STEAG business more future-proof.

    Feel free to contact us for a powerful project partnership!

     

    Our innovations

    HydrOxy Hub Walsum

    A hydrogen lighthouse project in Duisburg for the decarbonization of the steel industry

    Together with the project partners thyssenkrupp Steel and thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers, STEAG is working on a feasibility study for the construction of a water electrolysis plant with a capacity of up to 500 megawatts (MW) on the site of the STEAG location in Duisburg-Walsum. The plant will be used to supply the nearby thyssenkrupp Steel steel mill with green hydrogen and oxygen. If an investment decision is taken in spring 2023, commercial commissioning of the plant is conceivable in early 2025.

    HydroHub Fenne

    HydroHub Fenne becomes real laboratory of the energy transition

    The project outline, which STEAG drafted together with other project partners and submitted to the "Reallabor der Energiewende" ideas competition of the German Federal Ministry of Economics (BMWi), was selected from 90 entries and assessed as eligible for funding. With the selected projects, the German government wants to accelerate the expansion of hydrogen technologies and the establishment of sector coupling and bring them to market maturity.

    Gas-fired Power Plant

    Project in Leipheim (Germany)

    In Leipheim (Bavaria), we are currently working with partners on a gas-fired power plant project with a capacity of around 600 MWel. If realized, it would be conceivable that the plant could be commissioned in 2023. Due to their high flexibility, gas turbine power plants are particularly suitable for compensating for the fluctuating feed-in of renewable energies and thus providing system services to stabilize the electricity grids. With its construction as a special network equipment (bnBm), the Leipheim gas-fired power plant is positioning itself as a partner of the energy turnaround for a secure power supply.

    Gas and steam Power Plant

    Construction of a gas and steam Power Plant in Herne (Germany)

    Starting in 2022, a combined gas and steam power plant will generate low-emission electricity and heat in Herne (Germany) using highly efficient combined heat and power (CHP). With a natural gas-powered turbine and a downstream steam turbine, it will generate an electrical output of 608 MWel. In addition, the power plant will cogenerate up to 400 MWth of district heating and, with an electrical efficiency of >60% and a fuel utilization factor of >85%, will be one of the most efficient and at the same time quietest power plants in the world. The power plant in Herne will replace the previous coal-based heat generation and thus make a significant contribution to CO2 -reduction.

    Battery Storage Systems

    Developing innovations

    The battery storage project picks up on the megatrends of "carbon footprint" and "decarbonization" and combines them with STEAG's expertise in battery storage. Companies are increasingly procuring long-term green power supplies from wind or PV parks ("Green PPAs"). The problem is currently that generation and consumption only partially match in terms of timing. To make the supply surplus (e.g. at noon when the sun is shining and the wind is blowing) usable for industrial customers, intermediate storage is needed. The world's largest battery storage platform in the future, based on a lithium-ion battery, will initially have a storage capacity of around 250 MW / 1000 MWh and offers an expansion potential of up to 2,000 MW. With the project STEAG helps industrial customers to improve their eco-balance and to get the possibility to cover their green power demand with a higher quality and simultaneity of time.
