Swedish utility Vattenfall is considering its options regarding its coal-fired power plant at Hamburg Moorburg in the light of Germany’s exit from hard coal-fired power generation, according to a statement from Magnus Hall, its Chief Executive.

Hall said: “The options include a possible fuel change to gas or biomass, or selling the plant.” He added that there were parties interested in buying the plant. He added: “We would also welcome it if compensation for the decommissioning of hard-coal plants was extended beyond 2026.” This is currently not planned.
